This post from Ben Arment spoke to me today; perhaps it will you as well.
Every morning, I pray the same prayer: “God, let me fear only you today.” It’s not that I actually fear other people. It’s that I wage secret campaigns against them, rather than speak openly and honestly.
What are the signs of fearing man?
- The fake laugh
- Being a “yes man”
- Blending in with the crowd
- Not being true to my passions
- Not speaking truth at my own risk
- Putting on a fake persona
