My dear friends, you should be quick to listen and slow to speak or to get angry. If you are angry, you cannot do any of the good things that God wants done. (James 1:19-20; CEV)
I will be proud about this man, but I will not be proud about myself except to say things which show how weak I am. Even if I talk about myself, I would not be a fool because it is the truth. But I will say no more because I want no one to think better of me than he does when he sees or hears me. (2 Corinthians 12: 5-6; New Life Version)
When you get it . . . I mean really get it . . . that you are a child of the King of the Universe . . . you won’t need to defend yourself or try to “look better than you are”.
