Be not wise in your own conceits

Download PDF

We have opinions of ourselves and high expectations of what we do and what we are now. We are so convinced that we are better than others, we have smarter opinions and over confident of ourselves.

This pride becomes our vice, one of the 7 deadly sins.

We must not admire our betterness than others. Let us be more humble even if we think we are higher than others, we are just ordinary and meek person before God.
