day no. 13,441: self and steam‏

2 Corinthians 10:17-18

17 As the Scriptures say, “If you want to boast, boast only about the Lord.”
18 When people commend themselves, it doesn’t count for much. The important thing is for the Lord to commend them.
It doesn't matter what you think of yourself, unless you think a lot of yourself, in which case it matters a great deal because God doesn't buy into boasters.

So what you think of yourself matters a great deal.

If you are puffed up and self-assured, you will be found wilted and left wanting by God at His final judgment.

The ONLY approval that matters is His approval of you.

All the self-esteem in the world will not survive the melting pot of God's pure assessment.
