Let Another Testify of You
One of the principle Jesus taught us is that bragging about your accomplishments devalues them. If you want people to value your achievements, let them discover it from another source. Jesus said “if I testify about Myself, My testimony is not valid. “There is another who testifies of Me”-John 5:31-32. Jesus did not brag about His accomplishments. He relied on The Holy Spirit to testify about Him. King Solomon corroborated Jesus when he said “Let someone else praise you, and not your own mouth; an outsider, and not your own lips”-Proverbs 27:2.
