Acknowledge But Do Not Accept Praise

… When someone praises you to be of great character.

Comments like that are the standards that we should earn and work towards, but certainly not what we should live for. Opinions of people are like pebbles by the river. They are cute but that’s about it.

It’s kind of a thin line.

Most of us ungenuinely desire and try to be humble people. And when someone praises us in context to our humility, it will make our heart mighty glad. But on the other hand, to live by those words can be a window for pride.

So here’s a principle, acknowledge but don’t accept any praise.

Simply because with all the praises of who we are, God alone knows how we are still NOTHING without JESUS! So leave all praise at that truth.

He must become greater and I must become less.
