We may often be of more consequence in our own eyes than in our neighbors’. (from Aesop’s Fables)
Winners who sometimes find themselves in the spotlight with a lot of accolades in the press might begin to believe what they read and hear about themselves. We’ve seen too often how those winners begin to believe their own press. It can happen to any of us when we achieve a bit of success. Our neighbors might just be the best judges of us.
Pride ends in humiliation, while humility brings honor. (Proverbs 29:23)
