So how does all this relate to you?
It's easy to be humble and to seek God's direction when you're starting a new endeavor. Maybe it's a new job. Maybe it's writing a book. Unfortunately, some people don't handle success very well. They look back and see how far they've come and swell with pride, as if they reached those heights without God's aid.
An editor friend once confided (without naming names) how even Christian authors sometimes fall into this trap. After their first book or two, they become haughty. Their nose tips upward. They polish the halo a bit as they soak up praise. According to my friend, one author even publicly claimed, "No one has ever edited my material," when in fact the editorial team had thoroughly edited his words.
Can you handle success? If you reach your goals, will you remember to thank God for His help? Or will you ignore the fact that He is the One who gave you your brain, your talents, and your health as you can take all the credit?
Friend, I wish you good success, but I also wish for you the humility and good sense needed to keep success from spoiling you!
