A Christian Should Be Neither Boasting Nor Belittling

“Boasting is an evidence that we are pleased with self; belittling, that we are disappointed in it. Either way we reveal that we have a high opinion of ourselves.

The victorious Christian neither exalts nor downgrades himself. His interests have shifted from self to Christ. What he is or is not no longer concerns him. He believes that he has been crucified with Christ and he is not willing either to praise or deprecate such a man.” —A.W. Tozer, in Man—The Dwelling Place Of God (emphasis mine)
