May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.
-- Galatians 6:14
Feeling good about yourself is fantastic. Being full of yourself is too much. Hear the Good News, if ever you get too full of yourself, remember this, Jesus has done more for you than you can ever imagine. Being too full of yourself can lead to a number of things. The higher you think of yourself, the more likely you will think poorly of another. The lower you think of another, the more difficult it is to be in a right relationship with them. This then leads you to share less of yourself with others and place more of your "love-to-share" in your personal safety deposit box. Then being self consumed, we lose the one gift we have to share with others, the same love God has shared with us.
Father, thank You for the love you have shared with me. Help me to share this love with others. In Jesus' name I thank you. Amen.
