On today's front page SP has the following quote: "Think highly of yourself because the world takes you at your own estimate." I do understand the general logic of this quote but there's a more important referent to which we ought to compare ourselves and to which, one day, we will answer for our lives--Almighty God.
Thus, I will stick with his advice to my soul: "For by the grace given to me [the Apostle Paul] 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" (Rom 12:3).
"Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for 'God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.' Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you" (1Pe 5:5-7).
