Careful with compliments

There is nothing wrong with encouragement. We all need encouragement. And people generally mean well. But we must be cautious with [receiving] compliments. They can inflate and skew our vision of self. We can even begin to look for them, expect them, become concerned if we do not receive them.

Thank God his grace has become evident in us. Thank others that they have seen the divine presence in us.
