Proud vs. Humble – Recognition

Leslie: This is Seeking Him, with Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: Proud people crave self-advancement.

Man: I’ve got to word this report in a way that sets me apart from the pack.

Nancy: But humble people desire to promote others.

Woman 1: Hmm, how can I word this so that everybody gets the credit they deserve?

Nancy: Proud people feel wounded when others are promoted and they’re overlooked.

Woman 2: Why would they put her in charge?

Nancy: Humble people are excited when others are lifted up.

Woman 3: Congratulations! Let me know how I can help.

Nancy: Proud people are elated by praise and deflated by criticism.

Woman 4: He’s always shooting my ideas down!

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

Woman 5: It’s just by God’s grace.

Nancy: What does recognition—or the lack of it—reveal about the condition of your heart?

With Seeking Him, I'm Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
