Today I want to encourage you to stop apologizing.
I already see you looking at the screen with that “Whatchu talkin’ ’bout, Willis?!?” face.
I want you to stop apologizing for being blessed.
Perhaps you don’t literally say, “I’m sorry,” but your apology comes dressed like this:
Commenter: Girl, those are some nice shoes!
You: These things are so old…and they’re a size too big.
You received a compliment, and instead of saying “thank you,” you pointed out what’s wrong.
It’s o.k. to be blessed! You don’t have to make apologies or excuses for the nice things you may own, the gifts and talents you possess, or whatever else you have been favored with. Simply say, “thank you!” Thank the person giving the compliment, then thank Him who makes it all possible.
