THE PRAISE SINGER - 97/365
"I'll make you a deal...I'll sing your praises if you sing mine. I'm a really good "praise singer" too...in fact there's no one better.
What do you mean you don't need to sing mine because I'm already doing it?"
Receiving praise can make me feel good AND uncomfortable all at the same time. I tell myself I don't need it but when I don't get it I wonder where it is. And then, when I receive it should I give it back?
Perhaps I'll feel more settled when I learn that "praise" is simply "appreciation" that needs to be graciously received or honestly given.
How do you deal with "praise?"
