Thou Shalt Not Exalt Yourself

Do not exalt yourself in the presence of the king,
And do not stand in the place of the great;
For it is better that he say to you,
Come up here,”
Than that you should be put lower in the presence of the prince,
Whom your eyes have seen.
(Proverbs 25:6-7)

It is one thing to be confident, it is quite another to be pretentious… and most people can tell the difference.
