Good things happen in our lives and we open our mouths wide to tell the news! We get our phones and we post on social media. We get the attention and the likes. Then, it turns into boasting and it becomes a habit. Did you know that boasting is a form of human pride? Then before long, those things or people that we boast about DISAPPOINT US. That new car or home comes with monthly payments that causes you to work two jobs now instead of one. That new job position has introduced you to Prozac at the highest dosage. That spouse/mate has drained you because you have strenuously been hiding your pain from the public. That child you favored has rebelled against taught morals and values. The people and things of this world can fail us at any time, especially when we take our eyes off of THE ONE who blesses us. If we choose to boast, let’s boast about God and His Love for us that NEVER FAILS. Let’s boast about his GREAT ATTRIBUTES. Instead of drawing attention to ourselves, let’s draw attention to Christ. Let’s not get so caught up in our positions, our knowledge and what we have. Let’s humble ourselves so that we can recognize the Power of God. “It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God – that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. Therefore, as it is written: “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord” (1 Corinthians 1:30-31 NIV).
