SELF-ESTEEM

Romans 12:3
Gifts of Grace
For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned.

This verse might come across as an insult to self-proclaimed ‘self-made’ men and women. But admittedly, it is stressful to spend any amount of time with someone who are full of themselves. There is a thin line between humility and overconfidence. Humility is knowing who you really are, and not pretending to be above or below that. Real self-esteem cannot be faked.
