Boast

Posted: September 15, 2018

We all know someone who's boastful.  Ugh, right?  They just talk talk talk about themselves and all the things they have, all the things they do, all the places they go, all the people they know...

"As the Scriptures say, 'If you want to boast, boast only about the Lord.' When people commend themselves, it doesn’t count for much. The important thing is for the Lord to commend them."  2 Corinthians 10:17-18

The Bible is clear that we should only brag about what God has done.  After all, He provides the job or money or talent that leads to anything good!  When you start to feel prideful about earthly gains, stop to thank God for all that He has done for you and blessed you with.

Lord, thank You for blessing me!  I have air in my lungs, a brain in my head, a calling on my life, and I want to serve and honor You with all of it.  I will only boast in You and what You are saying and doing.  Amen!
