Humanity

by Norman P. Grubb

The tragedy of humanity is that we are created inferior and we try to make ourselves out as superior. That’s where all break downs come from. We all have the inferiority complex and we try to make out that we have the superiority. When I recognize that wherever I am I am there to have a Superior Person inside me, then I get the right superiority complex. The complex is Christ, not myself. We have, therefore, to learn first of all a basic eternal inferiority of humanity, and a basic eternal Superiority of the Living One who comes and lives in me. That inferiority and that Superiority joined makes man the divine man.
