Today's Godly Reminder - Jeremiah 9:23-24



"Thus says the Lord, 'Let not a wise man boast of his wisdom, and let not the mighty man boast of his might, let not a rich man boast of his riches; but let him who boasts boast of this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the Lord who exercises lovingkindness, justice and righteousness on earth; for I delight in these things,' declares the Lord."

Let not the one who is wise and skillful boast in his insight. Let not the one who is mighty and powerful boast in his strength. Let not the one who is rich boast in his temporal satisfactions and earthly abundance. But, let the one who boasts boast in this: that He understands and knows God and acknowledges Him and honors Him as God and recognizes without any doubt. And, He is the Lord who practices lovingkindness, justice and righteousness on the earth.

Don’t brag about your wisdom or strength or wealth. If you feel you must brag, then have enough sense to brag about worshiping the Lord. What He like best is showing kindness, justice, and mercy to everyone on earth. And, He act in loyal love.
