Some things in this world used to be really important to me; now I have new priorities.
The more I watch other people racing to take credit or basking in applause and accolades, the less I realize I want any of it. We all hate when someone filibusters during a discussion to take a rabbit trail on how amazing they are. Being appreciated is awesome. Being valued is fantastic. Being celebrated is touching. And being obsessed with this stuff is going to kill my ability to serve Jesus. Therefore, I give credit to my leaders for just about everything, those in authority over me for opportunities, and my wife for being amazing. I’m the credit giver, not just a taker. Much better place to be!
