In a world fueled by selfies, live streaming, and doing crazy stunts for likes, one can say that we have become a pretty self-centered society. Complimenting one’s success has been replaced with a sense of overshadowing the next person’s achievements.
But I wonder what would happen if we took a step back from praising ourselves and praised one another? Sometimes it is good to let someone else get the credit. Paul says in Romans 12 : 10 to “Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.” So next time you want to get all of the credit, show your spouse, co-worker, or friend some love and give credit where credit is due.
