What is the cause of all the wretchedness of man?

Or do you think Scripture says without reason that he jealously longs for the spirit he has caused to dwell in us? But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.” Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up. (‭James‬ ‭4‬:‭5-10‬ NIV)

Primarily pride; man seeking his own will and his own glory.

Yes, pride is the root of every sin, and so the Lamb of God comes to us in our pride, and brings us salvation from it.

We need above everything to be saved from our pride and our self-will. – AM

So will you seek God’s will and His glory or yours?

Do you want to live in opposition to God or in His favor ?
