Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. 1 Cor. 15:58

day 140: Boasting

1 Corinthians 1:31
As the Scripture say, "The person who wishes to boast should boast only of what the Lord has done."


It is so easy to think that you are all that when something you have had hand in is successful.  It's not hard to get the big head. 

But when something isn't successful, it is easy to blame God.

Well, guess what... God's hand was in it both. 

We can't do anything in this world without God.  We can't even wake up in the morning without Him. 

If you had a great idea work out at your job-- Boast on the Lord.

If you taught your child to do something-- Boast on the Lord.

If you baked the most awesome cookies ever-- boast on the Lord.

Because we know that we can do nothing without Him. 

Some people just like to boast.  They will boast about anything.  I'm bad about 'bragging' of all the things I've "had" to do (kinda the same). Instead of saying all the things I 'had' to do, I should boast on the fact that God did it-- or God allowed me to have the opportunity to do it.

If you feel that you have to boast, boast on what God has done. :)

God Bless You :)
