A Deadly Disease

It is the root-cause of every other ailment. It has brought restlessness, misery, and devastation to every family that ever existed anywhere in the universe. It has afflicted ordinary people, great leaders, and even holy angels. This cancer of the soul is best known as Pride or self-conceit. “The more we have it ourselves, the more we dislike it in others” (C.S. Lewis). It’s a deadly disease. To have it is to be delusional. To deny you have it is to be full of it and, thus, incurable. There’s only one lasting cure: Christ’s grace of humility. He Himself said, “learn from Me, for I am gentle & lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls” (Matthew 11:29; Proverbs 16:5, 18).—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
