The NAWLS Small Bite for June 13th
Take a dose of humility along with your success.Have you ever had someone tell you how they think you should live? Did you feel annoyed&even hurt? As you transform, your success can become a point of pride for you. But avoid the temptation to act as if you know it all, as if you know how others should lose weight, as if you are better than people who are struggling.
You can be satisfied with your progress and know it was the right path for you. But each person must choose their own destiny and come to their own decision. Remember how you felt when people tried to tell you what to do. Be gracious and compassionate with people, keeping your well-meaning opinions to yourself when they are not solicited.
Action for the day:
Practice humility today. Start by thinking of a time when someone practiced humility toward you.
