Boast in God

“Thus says the Lord: “Let not the wise man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the Lord.”- Jeremiah 9:23-24

Nothing we have, not strength and not money, delights that Lord. God is delighted when we recognize and live our lives fully trusting Him. Seeking to know Him and understand all that He is about: steadfast love, justice and righteousness. Our attitude as we walk through life is what delights God, not anything we own or any physical attribute.

If you are boasting in things about YOU, your confidence is misplaced. Boast in the things of God, seek to have a better grasp of His character, and live a life that delights your heavenly Father.
