Breaking Inferiority Complex-4

Numbers 13:33 “We saw the Nephilim there (the descendants of Anak come from the Nephilim). We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them.””(NIV)
…From yesterday…
It’s even possible for you to be working for such a boss who never praises you for your good work, but instead looks for the slightest excuse to issue you a query.
I have even seen pastors who always condemn their members, making them feel “unworthy” of God’s love.
I am sure you meet believers like that who just want you to feel they know God more than you do. They tell you they fast and pray 7 days a week. They pray 20 hours every day, worship God 4 hours every day. They tell you how holy they are and flash their intimidating “spiritual CV” before you just to make you feel inadequate.
They are the modern day Pharisees and Sadducees!
Jesus gave us an example of such:
Luke 18:10 “Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican.”
Luke 18:11 “The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men [are], extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.”
Luke 18:12 “I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.”
Luke 18:13 “And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as [his] eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.”
Luke 18:14 “I tell you, this man went down to his house justified [rather] than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.”
When you find yourself around such folks, you can develop a perverted image of yourself. Consistent disapproval can easily make you develop a grasshopper complex.
The second reason she gave was unbalanced approval. This talks about only hearing how great you are and not wanting to be criticised or corrected.
To be continued…
