We have to be very careful with the way we receive compliments. In the way we often take insults personally, to our own demise, we can also take compliments too personally as well. When one is complimented about their skills in basketball or singing or physical attractiveness, or preaching (etc.), the temptation is to allow the seeds of pride to be planted in the heart. A cure for this type of pride is similar to the cure for the pride of insults—don’t take it too personally.
