Samuel Butler said: “The truest characters of ignorance are vanity, and pride and arrogance.”
Sadly, I think Mr. Butler was right.
We live in a vain world. It is certainly prideful.
Arrogance does seem to rule the day.
To some degree, maybe we are all arrogant at times. And prideful. And vain. An ignorant.
Not good characteristics to strive for. But, who really has to strive for them?
They seem to come so naturally.
God forgive such shameful behavior of those who claim to belong to You.
Open our eyes to see that our only value is found in You!
