Day 211: Don’t Be Stuck Up

Proverbs 30:13

Don’t be stuck up and think you’re better than everyone else.


We’re not better than other men – but we’re not less either.

Do you have a healthy ego? Do you think more highly of yourself than you should? Or do you struggle with not having any self-assurance?

The old saying is true, “For every mile of road, there are two miles of ditch.”

You can border on narcissism or be completely insecure – either is unhealthy. The Apostle Paul demonstrates a balance in his ego as a man. His confidence was not in himself but his identity in Christ.

I do not think I am in the least inferior to those “super-apostles.” 2 Corinthians 11:5

May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. Galatians 6:14

As men passionately pursuing authentic manhood, we must stand tall, firm, shoulders back, knowing who we are as men – living unto the dignity of manhood. We must also be men who know that our strength is in Christ.


We're not better than other men - but we're not less either. Share on X
