Self-admirers and self-flatterers are really self-deceivers. Many think the proud are happy people, let me tell you they are not! This is a mistaken thought. God resist the proud, who display pomp and make a show; Many poor ones feel far less uneasiness than the rich, with all their fancied advantages around them. The man who doesn't know God is poor, though he is rich, because he is lacking of that which alone is true riches. As I read through the book of Esther I had to laugh as I got to Chapters 5 and 6; what a story.
