“But those who wish to boast should boast in this alone: that they truly know me and understand that I am the LORD who demonstrates unfailing love and who brings justice and righteousness to the earth, and that I delight in these things. I, the LORD, have spoken.” 9:24
Is there anything else worth boasting about? When I stop and think about the things that I get prideful about, it’s laughable. Anything worth bragging about is because of Jesus in my life. I pray that I am able to pride myself on truly knowing him, and nothing else.
What do you get prideful about?
Is it a personality trait? A role or position you’re in? Something you own?
“Idols are worthless; they are ridiculous lies! On the day of reckoning they will all be destroyed. But the God of Israel is no idol! He is the Creator of everything that exists, including Israel, his own special possession. The Lord of Heaven’s Armies is his name!”
Amen to that. Let’s pray for humility that brings us closer in relationship to God and further from self-destruction.
