God Resisteth The Proud, And Giveth Grace To The Humble (1 Pet. 5:5)
Pride desires to do great things publicly: love is happy to do little things privately. Man can only do little things. Only God can do great things. Even Christ said, "I can of mine own self do nothing." Man, if he is wise and faithful, and humbles himself truly (not just pridefully), may be used as an instrument for God's great things.
