Pride & Humility

    God shows mercy to whom He shows mercy,

And compassion upon whom He has compassion.

    God resists the proud,

But gives grace to the humble.


 

The prideful man says, 'I am better than you think I am'.

Where the humble man says, 'I'm worse than you can imagine'.

    

The proud cannot understand Mercy,

Because they don't believe that their punishment is just.

    The humble don't understand Grace,

Because they don't believe that their punishment is enough.
