Integrity + Humble = Character
Courtesy of Krista Cogdill, Life shrink’s or expands in proportion to one’s courage. “If you are successful, you win false friends and true enemies. Succeed anyway. The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable. Be honest and frank anyway.The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds. Think big anyway. People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs. Fight for a few underdogs anyway. What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight. Build anyway.” Be authentic but not boastful. Thus says the Lord: “Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches. (Jer 9:23) Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven. “Thus, when you give to the needy, sound no trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may be praised by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you. (Matt 6:1) Everyone wants to be appreciated but posting on facebook or speaking of your own greatness and achievements can actually say more about you in a negative way, than positive. Although people may not tell you, it reveals insecurity and pride and is seemingly obnoxious. “Let another praise you, and not your own mouth; a stranger, and not your own lips.” (Proverbs 27:2)
