Beware of Praise Singers 

Bible Text 

1 Samuel  18:7 And the women answered one another as they played, and said, Saul hath slain his thousands, and David his ten thousands.  18:14 And David behaved himself wisely in all his ways; and the LORD was with him.
Many have had their journey to purpose discovery and fulfillment terminated as a result of insensitivity to the tricks of their adversaries. If you are waiting for your adversaries to show up with physical attack then you may have to wait endlessly. David knew this and he was sensitive to the tricks of his adversaries. 

Christians are having one major enemy and that is the devil. Three most potent weapons the devil is deploying against this generation are pride, love of money and sexual pervasion. When people praise sing and you are falling for their sweet words, tendency exists you will put on the garment of pride. Another enemy of progress that comes the way of men that people praise sing is the alluring gesticulations from women of easy virtues. Do not fall for sweet words because it will not be of any benefit in the long run. 

Be like David that behaved himself despite accolades that the entire nation showered on him. Outshinning your senior colleagues because of momentary recognition is not a good option for a purpose driven Christian. Let God do the promotion while you keep doing your best. God bless you.
