My flesh demands that I be perfect in every decision I make. Sometimes I’m tormented by bad decisions, even tiny ones, but I always get LIFE from good ones, big or small. It’s easy to extend grace to someone I like who makes a bad decision, but I struggle to extend that same grace to myself. My joy is robbed. Why? Pride. A humble believer is not tormented by a bad decision, and easily extends grace to himself as he experiences failure.
Fresh humility is impossible without the convicting work of the Holy Spirit in the soul of a proud man.
