during my midterm evaluation today, we talked about how my biggest weakness as a teacher is that i am self-deprecating and that i often discredit what i say only moments after i say it. the fact that confidence is the struggle came as no big surprise to me because i know that i am self-deprecating. humility is hard. seeing others as more important than yourself and putting others' needs above your own (phil. 2) is NOT self-deprecation. Jesus is the ultimate example of what it is be humble and consider others' needs as more important than your own--He is, in fact, the example given in the phil. 2 passage i am referring to. now when i think of Jesus, one of the last things i think of is self-deprecating. He is simultaneously the epitome of humility and confidence, of service and authority.
When you stand on the stage you must have a sense that you are addressing the whole world, and that what you say is so important the whole world must listen.
