The Real Reason We Want to Kill Pride

C.J. Mahaney on why the Christian should kill his pride:

So many human ventures, so many grand designs of mankind, have been undermined because humility was lacking on the part of those involved…our motivation for rooting out pride must go beyond a knowledge of its pitfalls and perils.  Our pursuit should be driven by the amazing promise that humility holds out to us: God gives grace to the humble!
