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 . – Jeremiah 9:23-24
Do you like to boast?
I am a grandfather and, therefore, I like to talk about (and also have the God-given right to do so) my grandchildren. I also like to talk about my kids. They are amazing people. I love to tell others about my amazing wife. She is precious to me and our ministry together, as well as a wonderful servant of our Lord. So, about some things, I just like to boast. Oh, I am well aware of all my family’s imperfections, but I am proud of them, nonetheless.

About what or whom do you like to boast? According to the Bible, we should only boast in the fact that we understand or know God; an understanding and knowledge that are, in themselves, gifts that He has given! With this in mind, my prayer is that we may always boast first of our Savior and then be able to speak unceasingly of His work in those whom we love and cherish.
For it is not he who commends himself that is approved, but he whom the Lord commends (2 Corinthians 10:18). – Paul
