Humility or Pride?

In 2 Corinthians 11, we find Paul defending his credentials, his authority, and his teachings.  He’s having to compare himself to the false apostles in Corinth and showing his superiority to them.  They are messengers of Satan.  They’re deceivers and liars. He is forced into boasting but never to the point of sacrificing his true humility. In this single-session we learn that Paul’s commitment was based on his grateful heart.  The measure of our gratefulness is expressed by our commitment to His cause over and above all else in our lives.
