Tests for Boasting

Am I boasting? How do we test? Today over the pulpit, pastor gave 4 ways to check ourselves:
1) Is it a fact or pure boasting?
2) Is it just the tip of the iceberg or the sum total of it?
3) Does it make my head swell when I say it?
4) What's the purpose of saying it?

These 4 gauges must be used together to determine whether we are boasting or purely just stating the facts.

True humility is rare and hard. Most of us un-consciously boast once a while. Today's sermon reminds me to live in humility, i.e. in such a way that what others see of me, is just the tip of the iceberg. In so doing, there is much depth and substance in my life.

But how hard it is...
