BRAGGING ABOUT YOUR FAITH IS NOT SCRIPTURAL
Let someone else praise you, and not your own mouth; an outsider, and not your own lips.
It is a gift to all who receive grace not a gift to boast about. He is not a God who puts you on a pedestal. He loves humility over all boasting and loves us equally. We can’t be better than someone else because we believe. We believe because he draws us and we respond. We didn’t create grace. He is grace. We need to share the good news.
Verses to meditate on today
But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth.
As it is, you boast in your arrogant schemes. All such boasting is evil.
Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring.
Song for my day
Kari Jobe (Forever)
Dear Father let me turn my head when Christians Boast as if they have a pot of gold to their selves. No there is not a pot gold for just one arrogant christian, there is a pot of gold in Jesus Christ who is humility in full. Let me walk away from anyone that boast because I realize we are all as filthy rags.
