Ego check is an exercise in humility.

Ego check is an exercise in humility. Accept praise, but never believe it totally and get carried away. Remember you are mortal. Constantly listen to your best Companion, the Holy Spirit. Reflect on your shortcomings and praise God for His grace. Ego affirms a leader’s ability to take charge. But checking the ego demonstrates a leader’s ability to take charge of himself. This is why Paul said, I die daily! Galatians 5.24 & 6:4 says,Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. “But each one must examine his own work, and then he will have reason for boasting in regard to himself alone, and not in regard to another”.
“It’s okay if people think u r God, but you’re in trouble if u start believing it.” We have to believe in ourselves – otherwise no one else will. Our conviction about the gifts we have received from God the Giver has to be strong and resilient without pride & arrogance. Our life & Character reflect our egos louder than the words we speak. Let’s glory in God’s grace
and then boast in Christ.
