“A proud man is always looking down on things and people; and, of course, as long as you are looking down, you cannot see something that is above you.”
― C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
All of us have an inbuilt prideful tendency to look down and out at our circumstances. We look down because this situation cannot be my fault. My situation, after all, must be caused by some evil person who has infiltrated my life. We look out because there has to be a way out – a way that I can construct. As we look down at the cause and out for the solution, we miss the answer because our egos hide the solution. Simply stated, let us look to the God from above who loves us and cares for us no matter how bad things seem.
