the wool over little old me

The Komarna Rebbe explains in Netiv Mitzwotecha (Netiv haTorah, 1:3) that hubris, ga'avah is the worst form of sin because only ga'avah can drive all of the holiness of your actions entirely into the dark side. 

Contrasting this, humility is the highest form of offering. 

Beware false humility though--when it comes to serving HaShem we should never question whether we are adequate to the task, instead we must push forward with great confidence and energy.
