DECEMBER 23: Boast In The Lord
“But of Him are ye in Christ Jesus, Who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: that according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.” 1 Corinthians 1:30-31
Keep this simple truth in mind: no matter how good you are at something or what it is that you accomplish, remember that your ability and success is all because of Jesus. Our boasting is not to be in our accomplishments, but in the Lord. Refrain from pride, for it will lead to destruction and from haughtiness, for it will cause one to fall. Remember to give God the glory for every one of your successes, no matter what sort they are.
Scripture reading: Proverbs 16:18; Jeremiah 9:23-24
