“Pride wilts in the atmosphere of the gospel; and the more pride is mortified within me, the less frequent are my moments of sinful contention with God and with others. Conversely, humility grows lushly in the atmosphere of the gospel, and the more humility flourishes within me, the more I experience God’s grace along with the strengthening His grace provides. Additionally, such humility intensifies my passion for God and causes my heart increasingly to thrill whenever He is praised.”

-Milton Vincent, A Gospel Primer for Christians: Learning to See the Glories of God’s Love, p.28

James 4:6- “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” 

Psalm 34:2- My soul makes its boast in the LORD; let the humble hear and be glad.
