It is very difficult to "eat our words," and slice off another large serving of "humble pie!" Let's be honest, we quickly recognize other peoples faults. When they mess up we wait for an apology. If they deny their faults we say, "Why don't you admit it?" When we are the guilty party we play the "blame game" or excuse ourselves with the old faithful stand by, "Well, I'm only human!"
Humble pie is really not bad once you begin eating. "God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble. Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you (1 Peter 5: 5b-7 NKJ)." Think it through; our part is to accept the humble pie from the hand of our master. He even tops it off with the whipped cream of grace!
