It is very hard for me to judge myself - without judging myself by comparing myself to other people.
God never judges me by comparing me to other people.
I am like you, I have “glory hunger”.
I am like you, I desire vainglory - glory for myself in regard to matters that are, in reality, unimportant.
When I believe I am doing a great job in attaining vainglory, I provoke people. When I believe I am doing a poor job in attaining vainglory, I envy other people.
In the midst of our pursuit of vainglory, God the Son of God, emptied Himself and died for us to save us.
Only God can save me; and only because He loves me; and only by what He did by His Son’s death upon the cross; and it only becomes mine by faith in His promise to save.
Every Christian has burdens.
The Lord did not redeem me to bowl alone, but to be part of a “one another” local church home.
No one deceives me better than me, myself and I.
