Taking Credit and Humilty


What does it mean when I downplay an accomplishment or treat what some may boast about as no big deal?

If I don’t take the credit and no one else could take credit for it, what does that mean? I would say that God is to thank, but I can’t say that I openly credit God for as much as I should. Do I avoid taking credit through my humility, but at the same time refrain from crediting God because I know it will create a line in the sand with some people.

Am I just THAT P.C.?

Would that even be considered P.C.? I have certainly been guilty of avoiding confrontation, so that might explain me being quiet about my faith. But what about my accomplishments? I have had a a taste of having an overblown ego and I don’t ever want to go there again, but I wonder if I am somehow shorting myself by downplaying the things about myself that I should be proud of.

I actually don’t think there is enough humility in this world, so it is unlikely that I will try to lessen mine. I have been chewing on the thought and figured that I might gain something from throwing it out there. We’ll see I suppose.

    Interesting blog post…Got me thinking, so I went over to biblegateway.com and looked up verses on boasting in the Bible…I’ll list them here, take a look at ’em and tell me what you think when you get a chance…I’ll take a look too and see if I can come up with some thoughts…

    Psalm 34:2, 44:8
