I know who I am not
Acts 10: 26
“But Peter made him get up. “Stand up,” he said, “I am only a man myself.”
Peter knew who he was not. He knew he was no better than Cornelius. He certainly knew he shouldn’t be worshipped.
It’s one thing not falling into the trap of worshipping someone. It is another to not fall into the trap of being worshipped.
It is a difficult line to walk. To receive praise well is a difficult task. To receive a compliment and not to shirk it off but to accept it without believing you are better than you actually are needs to be done carefully. Not everyone manages it. Some end up not accepting and others end up wanting to hear it more and more and become addicted.
Know who you are, that is the secret to satisfaction in life.
Know who you are not, that is the stabiliser of your life.
