Being an imperfect man when I hear a talk like this I immediately start thinking  of others in the congregation that need to hear this talk when in reality all 5 points need to be applied to myself ( ourselves ) keeping in mind that we "all fall short" no one is immune to worldly thinking and the heart being treacherous can cause  many boastful and hurtful desires to display itself in our personalities! Proverbs 19:21 "Many are the plans in the heart of a man, but the counsel of Jehovah is what will stand." 😕

 I liked the phrase " Are we wise enough to be humble enough to 'bear praise without injury'?

 

You don't think that getting praise can have negative connotations.We are so imperfect we don't realise that we could react wrongly to what seems a good/nice thing.
