 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD,and depart from evil—Prov. 3:7.

 

Nothing is more dangerous to the child of God than self-conceit; it blocks the way to true progress and reformation of heart, and hinders true usefulness to others, and especially usefulness in God’s service; for His Word declares, “God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.” Instead of self-confidence, Wisdom dictates a distrustfulness of self, remembering its weaknesses and imperfections, and correspondingly the greater reverence for God and reliance upon Him, which more than anything else will strengthen and enable us to depart from the evil of our fallen estate.
