“For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”
This might surprise some people: God isn’t mad at sinners. God isn’t mad at you; He’s mad about you. He loves you.
But I would also add that God does get angry when people who think they’re spiritual or call themselves religious stand in the way of others coming to believe in Him.
We find a story in the New Testament about a man who went to the Temple to pray. He was a tax collector, and tax collectors weren’t loved a lot in those days.
