Pride and the Christian

Studying to teach James 4:7-10 on Sunday morning (10 am in the youth house – you’re invited) and I came across this:

“The devil, unlike the Christian, takes pride seriously, knowing that as long as he can control human pride he can frustrate God’s purposes, if but temporarily.  There may be many kinds of pride but for the devil’s purpose a proud Christian is of much more use than an atheist or a pagan.”
