Why are compliments so hard for me to accept?

I am to think appropriately about myself.

Neither too high, nor too low

but according to the ability God has given.

Instead of receiving a sincere compliment,

graciously, humbly, giving glory to God.

I so easily, so quickly, minimize,

put myself down,

make a joke,

show false humility,

which is really,


Forgive me Lord for taking away

the glory that belongs to you alone,

when I deny the good work you have done in me.

It’s not about me.

It’s about you.
