From “Freedom is Just Another Word…

The greater our success, the greater the risk of us thinking too highly of ourselves.

The most exacting test of all to survive is prosperity.”

“For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you” (Rom. 12:3).
