Love is not proud…
– 1 Corinthians 13:4 (NIV)
Godly love acts in humility,
but with confidence.
This confidence is not in self,
not a prideful confidence,
but a confidence in your position in Christ
and who He created you to be.
He created you for this – to Love God, love people, and bring Him glory.
– Susie Stewart
A proud man then is a kind of glutton upon himself; for he is never satisfied with loving and admiring himself; whilst nothing else, with him, is worthy either of love or care.
– William Penn
In pride we become the objects of our own love; in humility we learn to love others.
– S. Michael Houdmann
Pride will create contempt, arguments, misunderstandings, resentment, loss of community, and indifference…We need to seek others first and their well being, not our arrogance and egocentric mentality. Love lifts up God, not us.
– Richard Krejcir
