 Proud vs. Humble - Recognition ~ Nancy Leigh DeMoss

My sister shared this with me today. Pride...that deadly sin!

[b]Proud vs. Humble - Recognition[/b]

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Proud people crave self-advancement.

"Ive 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 theyre 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.

"Hes always shooting my ideas down!"

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

"Its just by Gods grace."

Nancy: What does recognitionor the lack of itreveal about the condition of your heart?

With Seeking Him, I'm Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

This list of evidences of pride by Nancy DeMoss is excellent. I would like to share something that impressed me when I was a teen. My memory was evoked when she made this point: Are you uncomfortable inviting people into your home because you think it is not nice enough or you cannot afford to any lavish entertaining.

When I attended Bible School in OH in the mid 60s, some of the students boarded in a local home, the home of the conference mission secretary. I visited there and was appalled with the crudeness of the home. I came from a home that was very modern, nice and new. But these students told me they loved being there: this couple made them feel at home, welcome and loved. They were excellent hosts. Furnishings had nothing to do with it. Powerful lesson to this proud teen.

41 Evidences of Pride by Nancy Leigh DeMoss

unfortunately, I do find myself in some of these okay, a lot of these. but when I look at these it reminds me that I need to change, and helps me to take each of them to the Lord and ask His help in learning to humble myself.
