Do not lift yourself up, but be humble. There are many things that are distasteful to Me and pride is right there toward the top of My list. Work as if you’re working unto Me and give your best at all times, but don’t lift yourself up and think so highly of yourself… that was the beginning of Satan’s downfall. He was prideful and thought himself more worthy. Let others praise you, but be careful and remember… I gave you the gifts and abilities you have. Be mindful of this always and give me your praise and thanks, for it is I who am worthy. This is how you can keep from allowing pride to get in the way… Put and keep Me first.
Proverbs 27:2 – Let another man praise you, and not your own mouth.
