On the mother of all sins

A pride can be seen as the most dangerous vice among all. In my opinion it is so for one simple reason: the pride is base of almost all sins and a source of many disastrous events in the history. Let's take a look:

Lucifer was blinded by the light of his intelligence, Adam and Eve were proud enough to question God's will, Cain wanted to be the first one no matter of cost...
All of us have knowledge on the results of mentioned actions.

One can break this dangerous chain only by practising the virtue of humility.

Try it and you will be happy.

Of course the real humility can not be confused with a discouragement and a lack of self-appreciation. The one must lead us to an acknowledgement of the following truth:

The Creator is more important than you, me or any other person in Heaven or earth

Tomasz, Racibórz
