Let Us Boast

Jeremiah 9:23-24

This is what the LORD says:

“Let not the wise man boast of his wisdom
or the strong man boast of his strength
or the rich man boast of his riches,
but let him who boasts boast about this:
that he understands and knows me,
that I am the LORD, who exercises kindness,
justice and righteousness on earth,
for in these I delight,”
declares the LORD.

It is so easy for us to become prideful about worldly things. Our talents, our abilities, our money, the possessions we own; society says that those things are of much value and worth. Yet God's Word says that none of those things are even worth boasting about. The only thing we can truly boast about is our God; how magnificent and awesome He truly is. Let us boast in the Lord, the One and only true God!
