You hear it preached, taught in schools, pushed in seminars, touted in books and urged on parents to encourage it in their kids.
All that from people who have no idea what is going to happen 1 minute, 1 day, 1 month or 1 year in the future, let alone in eternity.
I believe it can be one of the most powerful traps in our lives. One that will lead either to arrogance or despair.
Don't get me wrong. I believe in dynamic, strong, confident, incredible people. All three of my children were raised to be this way and I am married to a woman who is not only godly, but a wise, respected incredible attorney.
The key? The source from where our confidence flows.
In His Service,
