Jesus Ben Sirach said "The origin of pride is to forsake the Lord, man's heart revolting against his Maker" (Sirach 10:12). The relation of a man to God is like the relation of a child to his father. A child always needs his father, and cannot live without his care and shepherding. Man's forsaking God indicates that he is not in need of God. If a believer feels that God gives him life, soul and everything, as by Him we live, move and exist (Acts 17:25, 18), then how can he allow himself to be far from God? Is this not considered pride?!
