    God gives grace to the humble because the proud don't know they need it

    My pride will steal my grace and the joy that results from this beautiful grace, leaving only despair in its wake.

    Two meanings…
    Meaning 1: We can have grace or we can pride, but not both. Pride and Grace are an either/or choice. If you choose grace, the joy that results from it will bring life. But what I believe this old thinker is getting at here is when grace is forsaken for the indulgence of pride, the addiction and gratification of pride is chosen, the chooser must continue to indulge in the pride or sink in the despair that surrounds it: pride is just a sinking raft in the massive sea of despair!

    Meaning 2 is quite clear, fish face overpopulation all the time when put in fish bowls or jars. It must be corrected! πŸ˜‰

    What precious truth! If I am prideful, I will not seek His gift of amazing grace, but will assume, I can make it on my own entirely. It is only when I am empty of pride, that I can be full of His grace, through sheer despair that I can do nothing on my own. Truly, "apart from Him, I can do nothing" John 15:5. Pride says, "I am able. I can do it by myself. I am god." Humility, which means, "to see yourself as small, in as much as you are so; it is the correct estimate of yourself", says, "I am not able. I cannot do this apart from God. God alone is God and He alone can give me grace to make it."
