You Can be Proud That You Are Not Proud

I once heard a story about an Amish farmer who bought a new pair of overalls. Of course, the Amish are famous for their simplicity, and trying to avoid pride. As he put on his new overalls and looked in the mirror, he said, “Oh, this will never do! I’ll be proud in these!” So he removed the new overalls and put on the patched, worn, and dirty ones. He stood again in front of the mirror and said, “Ah, you’d look good in anything!” Sins like pride can be so deceitful, that you can be proud that you’re not proud. (Darrell Settler - Sermon Central).
