Ego will destroy you, but a cool tempered person will see trouble and avoid it. Beware of an egotistic person their judgement is clouded and it can cause destruction at the end. You do not have to compromise or prove who you are in Christ to men. At the assured time all eyes will see. Even when they doubt you, don’t mind them continue praying in your closet and at the appointed time God will SURELY put a laughter in your mouth. The last shall be first amen. And these things, brethren, I have in a figure transferred to myself and to Apollos for your sakes; that ye might learn in us not to think of men above that which is written, that no one of you be puffed up for one against another – 1 Corinthians 4:6 KJV.
