I'm reading "A SPIRITUAL TREASURY FOR THE CHILDREN OF GOD (Volume 1)" by William Mason and wanted to share this quote with you.

"Pride and self-confidence are deeply rooted in the human heart. False hopes are built on self-righteous pleas. By these the heart is blinded to the exceeding sinfulness of sin; hardened against the fear and dread of the Lord; and such live in rebellion against the truth as in Jesus. Like Paul, we are all naturally alive without the law; and, with the Israelites of old, are ready to say, "All that the Lord hath spoken we will do."—Exod. 19: 8. Alas! poor souls utter such words of ignorance and pride, when, like the disciples on the mount, "they know not what they say." But whom the Lord loves, he proves. The Lord is a jealous God; he will permit no flesh to glory in his presence; nor shall his dear children live without his fear, and a holy hatred of pride and sin; therefore they must go out of their tents of vain confidence."
