Our society teaches us to boast our every success. Social media is flooded with shout outs for the things we have done. As authors we are told to market ourselves, get our name out there, make our mark in the industry.
But we must maintain a humble heart before the Lord.
So how does that work?
“I am excited about what I have done—but it takes nothing away from what you have done. And I am no better than you in anyway.”
Is it just me, or is that completely insincere and rather nauseating?
I have to hold every thought captive. Analyze it. Is it about me, or am I pointing others to Christ? Is this for my glory or His? These are tough questions and I often dread the answers.
Because I suffer from pride.
How do you stay humble?
