We live in a world where bragging is prevalent. “Look at what I have” and “Look at what I did” are the most used. It starts early. I know I hear it a lot from my four year old daughter. Let’s face it, we are so good at letting others know how great we are. Let’s channel that another way…

book-open_32pxThis is what the Lord says: “Don’t let the wise boast in their wisdom, or the powerful boast in their power, or the rich boast in their riches. 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! (Jeremiah 9:23, 24 NLT)

But God puts a higher priority on knowing him personally and living a life that reflects his justice and righteousness.

Enjoy Life!
