Boasting

megaphone-1468168_pixabayIt is human nature to boast. Some boasting is good but much of it is questionable or simply fleshly. Often behind boasting is the desire to build oneself up or seek approval from others.

Paul says this, “‘Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.’ For it is not the one who commends himself who is approved, but the one whom the Lord commends.” (2 Cor. 10:17-18)

Success is defined as one whom the Lord commends not what we or others think.

Take a moment to think through boasting that you might have done these past few days. Talk with the Father about this.

May you and I boast in the Lord.

Maranatha,
