What about that pat on the back?

February 27, 2013 2 comments

It is so very true that the things that irritate us the most about others are the very things that challenge us. You would think we would get it but some days, even looking in the mirror, we miss it.

We all love for people to notice how good we are. It makes us feel better. The pat on the back is nice. It is, however, pride if we let getting kudos drive our behavior. Our motivation must be to please God not to get compliments from others. That is all there is to it.

“The more pride we have, the more other people‚Äôs pride irritates us” – C. S. Lewis

What is the solution to being wise! Be willing to take advice.
