temptation

James understood that temptation begins with an illusion about the self—a skewed vision of who you are. The satanic powers don’t care if your illusion is one of personal grandiosity or of self-loathing, as long as you see your current circumstance, rather than the gospel, as the eternal statement of who you are. (Russell Moore, Tempted and Tried)

Remember who you are today. Do not think too highly of yourself, because you are a sinful human being. Do not think too lowly of yourself, because you were created in the image of God to bring glory to Him.
