Proverbs 27:2

2 Let someone else praise you, and not your own mouth;
an outsider, and not your own lips.

Oh yes!! We all know someone who always finds time to boast about their accomplishments or possessions! Now please don’t me wrong, there is nothing wrong with being excited about achieving goals and obtaining wonderful things, BUT who are you giving credit too? Yourself or God? Have you forgotten that everything you have comes from God? Nothing and I mean NOTHING that you do comes from your own hand. You don’t wake up on your own, you don’t breathe on your own, sometimes you can’t even decide what you’re going to wear that day, what makes you think you are living  without the favor of God on your life? So why not start giving credit where credit is due!

Whatever skills or talents God has given you, they are for His glory. Learn to take pride in stride. If your popularity increases, do not become intoxicated by the praise and accolades. Praise is like old lady perfume…if you consume it, it will kill you!

Love Ya!
