Willard: at the center

Saturday, August 26, 2023
Pride goes before destruction,
    a haughty spirit before a fall.
Better to be lowly in spirit and among the oppressed
    than to share plunder with the proud.
    —Proverbs 16:18-19 (NIV)
    ... the fundamental pride of putting oneself at the center of the universe is the hinge upon which the entire world of the ruined self turns.
    ... Dallas Willard (1935-2013), The Renovation of the Heart, Colorado Springs, Colo.: Navpress, 2002, p. 57 (see the book)
    See also Pr. 16:18-19; Ps. 18:27; Pr. 11:2; Matt. 20:25-27; Mark 7:20-23; 10:42-44; Luke 1:51-52; 11:43; Rom. 12:3,16; 2 Cor. 10:12; Eph. 4:17-19; 2 Tim. 3:2-5; Rev. 3:17-18
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, break my pride and cast my sin out.
