Elder Efraim of Arizona-The evil spirit of pride

 

When the evil spirit of pride fights against us, we shall never stop falling. But falls make us aware of our wretchedness and help us attain humility. Then Christ comes, Who is humble of heart and meek in soul. Then joy, peace, and sweetness will reign in our soul, and blessedness will warm our heart.
