For the sake of praise, not pride

"We are not saved from sin and changed into righteousness for the sake of pride but for the sake of praise. And when God's work on us is done and we stand perfected before Christ in the last day, we will not exult in our worth but will sing with millions of angels: 'Worthy is the Lamb that was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and honor and glory and blessing.' Praise to you, O Lord. Amen."

  -- John Piper
