Boast in This

But those who wish to boast should boast in this alone: that they truly know me and understand that I am the LORD who demonstrates unfailing love and who brings justice and righteousness to the earth, and that I delight in these things. I, the LORD, have spoken!

~ Jeremiah 9:24 [NLT]

There are many things that we feel prideful about in our lives but God says there is only one thing we should boast about: our knowledge and relationship with God.  When we meet someone new we often give out details about our families, careers, and maybe where we live.  Shouldn’t the first thing people know about us be connected to our faith in Jesus?  Sharing how he has provided all those things.  Reframe how you talk about your life, leading with God has provided and then sharing all He has done for you.
