Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.
“It is always self who gets irritable and envious, resentful, critical, and worried. It is self who is hard and unyielding in it’s attitude to others. It is self who is shy, self-conscious and reserved. Anything that springs from self, however small it may be, is sin. Self-complacency in service is sin. Self-pity in trials and difficulties, self-seeking in business or Christian work, self-indulgence in one’s spare time, sensitiveness, touchiness, resentment, and self-defense when we are hurt or injured by others, self- consciousness, reserve, worry, fear, all of these spring from self and all are sin.” — Roy Hession
