What’s your opinion of you?

A business executive received outstanding customer service from a young man at a local business. He asked the fellow how much he was making at his current job, and was surprised to hear how low the wage was.

“You should come work for me,” the executive said, “I would pay you what you’re really worth!”

“I’m sorry sir,” the young man replied, “but I couldn’t work for such low wages.”

It isn’t often we come across someone with such a humble attitude. In fact, many would say that’s an unhealthy attitude.

It is true that we gain a sense of our value in knowing Jesus Christ offered His life to save us from our sin — we’re greatly valued by God! But for some, it can be all too easy to think more highly of themselves than they should, something the Apostle Paul warned against …

“Because of the privilege and authority
God has given me, I give each of you this warning: Don’t think you are
better than you really are. Be honest in your evaluation of yourselves,
measuring yourselves by the faith God has given us,”
Romans 12:3.

Does God’s great value for you lead you to humility? Or do you think more highly of yourself than you should?
