STOP AND THINK – You know you have a problem with pride when you cannot rejoice in someone else’s promotion. (Tiberius Rata, seminary professor)
How do you respond when you hear of someone’s advancement in his profession? What if it’s a fellow staff person? Are you happy for him or her? Do you congratulate them and wish them well? Or, are you a bit envious, hurt, perhaps, because you didn’t receive a similar promotion? Pride sometimes prevents us from enjoying the success of others.
Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn (Romans 12:15).
