SELF-CONFIDENCE OF DIGNITARIES

            Recently I was in a courtroom for the swearing-in of a new judge.  The presiding officer welcomed everybody and then said, “I realize that there are many dignitaries present.  I am afraid if I try to recognize all of you, I will miss someone.  Therefore, let me put it this way: if you consider yourself a dignitary, consider yourself as having been welcomed.”

            Parading our dignity in front of others is not becoming.  Those who base their self-confidence on the approval of others are hollow people.  Real self-confidence is not based on what other people think of you, but on who you and God know you are.  If you know you are a child of the King of kings, then you are a dignitary anywhere anytime, even if you are the only one who knows it.
