I was once a Baptist minister, so I really enjoy expounding upon Scripture and teaching.  So I was put in charge of our parish's adult Sunday School class as the teacher, and I noticed that I was beginning to struggle with pride.  So I decided to step back from teaching in the Church and just focus on my own spiritual life, and the spiritual lives of my family instead.  I am much happier now.  I would rather see me and my wife and children have salvation, than to have the admiration of the people at church for my knowledge.  :)
