…Therefore, in order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. (2 Corinthians 12:7 NIV)
If we are successful it is easy to allow pride to be a primary motivating factor. We see our accomplishments as our own and we do not want to share those with others.
Often times we are given a thorn to keep our pride in check. It is called “keeping us humble” and it is a hugely important factor in how we mature.
Are you dealing with something that feels like a thorn in your life. It may be there for a reason.
