Love is not prideful, or as stated above, arrogant. True love requires that we empty ourselves of pride and find humility as Jesus did. It is in this humble state that people can come close enough to us to be warmed by our love, and God willing be changed and grow from it. Pride builds walls that love cannot penetrate. These walls isolate people and leave them to the corruption of solitude. Allow love to permeate your life so that pride cannot exist.

 

(1 Corinthians 13:4-7) Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
