"[As] the fining pot for silver, and the furnace for gold; so [is] a man to his praise." (Pro 27:21)
Praise can be a snare:
"Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess [him], lest they should be put out of the synagogue: For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God." (John 12:42-43)
John, the most beloved disciple of Jesus, said, "I receive not honour from men." (john 5:41)
Accepting praise can be bad!
