December's Quote to Ponder

"[T]he essence of sin is man substituting himself for God, while the essence of salvation is God substituting himself for man."

Well, the quote didn't cause me to laugh. Although, inasmuch as Stott's juxtaposition helps me to see the boundless folly of my sin, I would call my pride laughable in a "how can you ever believe yourself good apart from Christ?" way. Overall, though, I find the quote sobering.
