We "feel" a lot. We feel like eating a hamburger. We feel like taking a nap during the day. We feel better when people acknowledge and recognize what we accomplish. We feel good when we are treated in such a way that makes us feel good. However, "feeling" shouldn't be the goal because "feeling" is often misleading and does not lead us to our ultimate desirable results. Humility prevents us from bringing as much attention to ourselves as we would like to have but humility also provides long term results that will provide eternal benefits.
Lord, help me to value long term growth over short term recognition.
