Gal 6:1 (KJV)  1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.

As we look at this verse the lesson here is that we should help those that are weaker.  And that we need to be careful lest we also become tempted.  As I look at this verse I realize that we all will make mistakes.  We all have weaknesses.  As you grow in the Lord be careful that you remember that others are important, their opinions are important and are of value.

I believe one of the greatest gifts you can give to someone is that of recognition and respect.

If you are arrogant you will turn people off.  The dictionary says arrogant is having or showing an exaggerated opinion of one’s own importance, merit, ability, etc.; conceited, overbearingly proud:

You see arrogance is an exaggeration of your worth revealed by a condescending attitude.  It makes others feel stupid, unwanted, insignificant.

It is sad that many that are blessed with tremendous talents suffer from arrogance, or should I say those around them suffer. The arrogant serve primarily themselves. The arrogant assumes his views and opinions are The Truth. In arrogance, natural confidence goes sadly by the wayside. Rather than the self-assurance born of knowing his own strengths and limitations, arrogance admits no limits. The arrogant sees no weakness in himself and may even secretly rejoice to find flaws in others. But imperfections are inherent in being human, so the arrogant, like everyone else, always has feet of clay, however well hidden they may be. Fearing exposure, haughtiness forms a hard shell masking inner emptiness.

What we need to remember is that we are to exhibit the love of Jesus to those around us and what they see in us might be the only example of love that they may ever know.

In ministry an arrogant attitude is called spiritual arrogance, the person believes that he has made progress, perhaps due to having a few deep experiences. Or he prides himself for being part of the in-crowd, or for being friendly with some well know person, or for being the teacher. Whatever the reason, the spiritually arrogant mistakenly determines that he or she is special and then vaunts that assumed eminence over other people. This may be seen in his outward behavior or seen in his inward self-image.

In another form of spiritual arrogance, the true believer aggressively proselytizes, pushing his own path as the one and only way, browbeating people by claiming that if they are not following them then they are not on the chosen path, or that they are misguided.
