How does one achieve the perfect balance between two opposing sides?
Side 1- We are told and taught that compared to God man is nothing. That we are just a speck in the universe in the whole scheme of things. We are told that the natural man is an enemy to God.
Side 2- We are told and taught that we are Children of God. That we are special. That we matter to Him and are loved by Him. That our souls are great in the sight of God. We are unique.
Then we are warned not to get too caught up in pride and to be humble and teachable.
So, my question or questions is this. How does one achieve the balance between these two sides? How does one feel good about themselves without coming off too prideful? How does one keep from going the opposite direction and feel like you are worthless?
