Some people get the idea that tearing themselves down is something super spiritual.
That's just pride disguised as humility. Pride is to say you know better than God, and to live in self-degradation is to say you know better who you are than God does.
True humility is believing that you are who God says you are and living that way out of faith.
God says you were lost, but now you're found
God says you were dead, but now you're alive
God says you were doomed, but now you're redeemed
God says you were fallen, but now you've risen
God says you were in slavery, but now you're free
God says you were unable, but now you're able
God says you were broken, but now you're loved
That is who God says you are. Are you going to believe Him? "But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light." - 1 Peter 2:9
