We need more Christians who will lead lives of repentance, for repentance always challenges pride.Can you imagine what the church would be like if people were more willing to admit even simple mistakes? How many hassles and difficulties would be eliminated if we were simply able to admit our mistakes.
If you're coming to God daily to confess to him how much you have sinned, you will find it hard to pretend that you are holier than everybody else. You'll find it hard to put on airs, to pose as the perfect Christian.
If we are able to humble ourselves before God, we will be humble before men as well. And the church will be far better if there are more of us who are like that.
And it starts with daily confession. Humility is not a character trait acquired by osmosis - it is acquired by practice.
