I'm trying to remember the last time I heard a sermon on the subject of pride and humility. Quite frankly, I'm stumped. That contrast doesn't seem to be a popular subject of late. I think such is unfortunate really because many people do not know to be on the lookout for slipping into spiritual pride. Here's a little observation worth pondering, I think:
A man who is eating or lying with his wife or preparing to go to sleep in humility, thankfulness and temperance, is, by Christian standards, in an infinitely higher state than one who is listening to Bach or reading Plato in a state of pride.
-- C.S. Lewis
