Something to Think About…Bragging on God

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. (Jeremiah 9:23-24, NIV)

There are many things that we brag about…a good grade we got on a school assignment, our children or grandchildren, the standing of our favorite sports team, the new car we just bought…but how often do we find ourselves sharing with others, the peace and joy that comes from knowing God? How often do we “brag” about our relationship with God? How often do we share how He’s moving in our lives, families, church, or city? How often do we “brag” about His “kindness, justice and righteousness”?

If we can brag about all these earthly things, which in the long run, don’t really matter…how come we can’t find the courage to boast about the Creator of the universe and the things He’s doing in our lives, and around the world, every day?

Just something to think about…

  1. Some people are just very private about their beliefs, others are concerned about being labeled a fanatic, and then others just want to be “PC” about it. Sometimes, being a believer in today’s world is a very tough road to navigate.
