Proud vs. Humble – Recognition by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 12/07/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Proud people crave self-advancement.

“I’ve got to word this report in a way that sets me apart from the pack.”

Nancy: But humble people desire to promote others.

“How can I word this so that everybody gets the credit they deserve?”

Nancy: Proud people feel wounded when others are promoted and they’re overlooked.

“Why would they put her in charge?”

Nancy: Humble people are excited when others are lifted up.

“Congratulations! Let me know how I can help.”

Nancy: Proud people are elated by praise and deflated by criticism.

“He’s always shooting my ideas down!”

Nancy: Humble people know that any praise for their accomplishments belongs to the Lord.

“It’s just by God’s grace.”

Nancy: What does recognition—or the lack of it—reveal about the condition of your heart?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
