Most leaders make their greatest mistakes after their greatest successes. Beware the temptations that come after a great victory. When things go well, don't let it go to your head. Everything good in your life is a result of the blessing of God.
When God uses you, get on your knees and thank him. He is the source and the goal of all that we do that has lasting value in people's lives.
When people honor you, simply say, "Thank you" and in the same breath say from the heart, "I'm glad God used me."
And mean it.
