As I’ve mentioned in my previous post, I’ve always been asking God for humility and a pure heart. The opposites are just too easy to fall into: it’s so easy to be swayed to arrogance and not notice when pride seeps in, and it’s easier to turn the eye away and move on with my own life than extend a helping hand.
