“The proud stand more in fear of men’s judgment than of God’s judgment. … ‘What will men think of me?’ weighs heavier than ‘What will God think of me?’ ….
Some prideful people are not so concerned as to whether their wages meet their needs as they are that their wages are more than someone else’s. Their reward is being a cut above the rest.
When pride has a hold on our hearts, we lose our independence of the world and deliver our freedoms to the bondage of men’s judgements.”-Ezra Taft Benson
