This is what the Lord says:
“Let not the wise boast of their wisdom
or the strong boast of their strength
or the rich boast of their riches, but let the one who boasts boast about this:
that they have the understanding to know me,
that I am the Lord, who exercises kindness,
justice and righteousness on earth,
for in these I delight,”
declares the Lord.
( Jeremiah 9:23-24 NIV)
Is it just me, or is there lots of boasting going on in the world today? I think back over the times that I boasted of things I thought were important, but they seem silly now.
Really… what does it matter how smart someone is? Or, how strong they are? They still can’t know everything or pick up a mountain.
Well… I can’t yet boast that I have the understanding to know the Lord, but I’m working on it… How about you?
