Even the wisest people learn little from their successes; God warns His people against allowing their victories (which He will grant) to lead them into pride and spiritual indifference. Instead, they should pay close attention to God's Word.
Although God's people find many successes in the world, they must not fall prey to a spirit of pride. We succeed not because of our moral superiority but because of the faithfulness of our divine intercessor and because of the great mercy of God.
God's loving discipline brings us face-to-face with our pride.
A concern for doctrinal purity should always be based on love of the Lord, not a desire to express spiritual pride.
