Inflated pride expelled Satan from the Paradise. Perceiving that ‘I am more than what I am’ turned angel into devil. Vanity only diminishes rather than embellishing us.
There was a heavyweight wrestler who won his championship title in a long hard battle. After winning the game the cheering crowd hailed him as unbeatable legionary. But the wrestler saw his victory in the spirit of humbleness and said I am not legendary. My ability and my strength that I defeated my opponent were not within me. It only came through me as His gift.
One may find the wrestler too timid in praising himself. But he thought pride against the heavenly wishes, and that earned him the real title.
