Do you allow praise to go to your head?

WRITTEN BY STEVE MARR

Scripture states, "...And a man is tested by the praise accorded him" (Proverbs 27:21 NASB).

When we experience business success, our boss and colleagues may shower praise. Be careful. If a great athlete reads too many press clippings and becomes over confident, defeat may follow. Success may make us overconfident and less likely to listen to good counsel. We may take on additional risks, and we may become lax in planning. When successful, be vigilant with good business practice, seek good counsel, plan well, and weigh risks and rewards before moving forward, to maintain business success.

In the Word

Scripture states, "...And a man is tested by the praise accorded him" (Proverbs 27:21 NASB).
