Destroying Pride

In her "Miscellaneous Writings," Mary Baker Eddy makes this perceptive comment (p. 358): "Human pride is human weakness. Self-knowledge, humility, and love are divine strength." Who would not abandon human weakness for divine strength? Humility may seem difficult to attain in taking this step, but it becomes spontaneous when it is understood through Christian Science.

This Science explains true humility—the state of thought soonest reached by divine grace—as a perpetual quality of the real man, the man made in God's likeness. For God's man, the true identity of each one of us, has nothing and is nothing of himself but is dependent upon his Maker for his all.
