Superbia [pride, self-absorption] is one of the seven deadly sins not just because it has the capacity to be calamitous, as in the case of Peter, but because it can be so common, as in the case of myself. Self-absorption is a besetting sin among all God’s children, nipping at the church’s heels throughout its history, and as such it must be met by the vigilance of the people of God to hold it at bay.
