That's the thought I had when I read Charlie's latest post:
Our pride gets in God's way. We want God, at least some of God, but only on our terms. We set conditions. We bargain. We dig in our heels and say, "Yes" to this but "No way!" to that. Unconditional surrender is always a bitter pill to swallow, so we try our best to negotiate a better deal for ourselves; anything would be better than a complete capitulation to God's terms.
Pride that holds God at arm's length is nothing but pure foolishness.
You'll want to read the whole thing... don't let pride prevent you from doing so.
