"Thus says the LORD: “Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the LORD who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the LORD.” -Jeremiah 9:23-24 (ESV)
Should I be boastful? Yes, I should boast in the Lord. He is the One to talk about, to give honor and praise to. It is not about me, it is all about the Lord Jesus Christ, who loved us so much He died on a horrible cross. Paul said we are to boast in the cross. The cross of Jesus Christ for it was there He redeemed us. Hallelujah!
Abba Father, I love You and I want to talk , think, boast only in Jesus. Help me to get off myself and on to You and then know the joy and peace of a pure relationship. - Amen!
