Proper Self-Assessment

driving in the fogThe drive home from a recent high school basketball game was long and tedious. In addition to the rain and darkness, a low-lying fog made it difficult to see the pavement in front of me. The road was hilly and curvy. The combination of these driving conditions caused me to slow down in order to drive safely.

After a while, several cars were backed up behind me. There was no place for them to pass, and nowhere for me to pull over and let them get by. I was tempted to speed up, so as not to inconvenience anyone. But I was already driving at the limit of my comfort level, so I maintained my slow but steady pace.

Sometimes we overestimate our abilities, and that’s when we tend to get into trouble.

Romans 12:3 says, “…Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment…”
