A Christian Reads the Tao te Ching - Standing on tiptoes: Pride, prejudice, and pushing too hard (chapter 24)

Standing on tiptoes: Pride, prejudice, and pushing too hard (chapter 24)

A Christian Reads the Tao te Ching

Episode seventeen looks at chapter 24, in which Lao Tzu goes off on those who overextend themselves and try too hard to shine. Arrogance, pride, and bragging seem like obvious vices, but it's always easier to identify them in others than it is to find them in ourselves.

  2. Four warnings against arrogance and self-righteousness
