Not toward God but toward man.
How do you deal with praise given to you? Does it puff you up or can you remain humble? It can be very hard to react rightly.
Knowing that all gifts come from God, including the ability to be disciplined and dedicated to a long and difficult task; this is a good start to remaining humble.
Knowing that, "but for the grace of God" I too would be swallowed in sinful self-indulgence and destruction - that knowledge continues to keep one humble and forgiving of others.
