“Talent is God given. Be humble. Fame is man-given. Be grateful. Conceit is self-given. Be careful.” — John Wooden
Are you talented? Do you have a talent? It’s God-given. Be humble – it has nothing to do with you at all! It’s a gift from God.
Are you famous? It’s because of the whim of man – here today, gone tomorrow. Be grateful for what you have today, because it will be gone before you know it. Do you remember who won X-Factor last year? The year before? They were famous … for a while.
Are you conceited? Do you value your self above others? Only you can generate that, not God, not other men – just you. Be careful, because you might be wrong about yourself…
Anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life has gone, a new life has begun!
2 Corinthians 5:17 (NLT)
