Breaking Inferiority complex-5

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…
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.
If you were only told how wonderful and superior you are, then feelings of inferiority surface when you recognize your own weaknesses.
You know deep down inside that you aren’t superior but just average, and you feel like you’re deceiving everyone. This can lead to inferiority complex in that you will always want to live up to the expectations of others. The danger however is that such folks become defensive.
The day somebody else shows up with a better skill they try to tear him down. This was the problem Saul had with David. He had been an insecure leader all his life and suffering from inferiority complex which didn’t show until David appeared.
We see such leaders every day in our world. The day people sing the praise of one of their subordinates, they become angry and can go as far as sending hired assassins to such a subordinate! This is what has led to several political assassinations.
Saul did it , and I have seen it in our contemporary world as well. It all springs from inferiority complex.
The third reason Vickie Kraft gave was being habitually controlled. A person can develop feelings of inferiority if he or she has been controlled by someone consistently for a long period of time. Your mother or father may have been critical and controlling.
Your husband may have given you the message that you can’t do anything right. Somewhere along the way, a teacher or a coach’s word might have had a negative effect on you.
