Boast In The Lord, Not In Yourself!

“But, ‘Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.’ [a] For it is not the one who commends himself who is approved, but the one whom the Lord commends.” (2 Corinthians 10:17-18, NIV)

You may or may not be a fan of Tim Tebow, but he realizes that his successes on the football field are due to the talents instilled in him by God. Tony Dungee, ex-coach of the super bowl champion Indianapolis Colts, also praised God for his team’s success prior to giving any interviews with the press. These guys, and many others, aren’t afraid to stand up and “boast” in the Lord!

Whenever we are successful in life it is because of the talents given to us by our Father. He deserves the honor and glory! We are simply His instruments, placed here on earth to glorify Him! Look for ways to give Him the glory this Monday. Boast in the Lord, not in yourself! Enjoy your day, “Working for Christ”!

[a] Jeremiah 9:24
