Thought For Today - February 7
Where is our boasting?

    "Thus saith the Lord, let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches: but let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the Lord which exercise loving kindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the Lord." Jeremiah 9: 23,24.
    What are we boasting in this morning, my friends? Are we glorying in our high degree of intelligence; our great worldly wisdom; education, college degrees, or our position in life? Are we boasting in our youth, or in our physical beauty, or our health?
    You may be saying within yourself,  I am young yet, in perfect health, I have the world by the tail, but do you? Boast not thyself of tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth. Take heed therefore and consider: "I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favor to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all. For man also knoweth not his time: as the fishes that are taken in an evil net, and as the birds that are caught in the snare; so are the sons of men snared in an evil time, when it falleth suddenly upon them." Ecclesiastes 9:11,12
    Each of us need to stop and consider that all that we are, all that we have, all that we ever can hope to become has been bestowed upon us by our creator and heavenly father. Every good and perfect gift comes down from our father above, whether it be our eternal salvation through our Lord and savior Jesus Christ, or the gift of intelligence, or health, beauty, position in life, or great riches. It is God who gives us the power to get wealth. "That according as it is written, he that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord." 1 Corinthians 1:31. "But he that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord. For not he that commendeth himself is approved, but whom the Lord commendeth." 2 Corinthians 17,18
    Friends, lets turn our eyes away from ourselves, and fix them upon our wonderful God, our Lord and savior Jesus Christ, and let all our boasting and glorying be in him.
    "Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? He retaineth not his anger forever, because he delighteth in mercy. He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depth of the sea." Micah 7:18,19.


WHEN WE HAVE ACCEPTED JESUS CHRIST AS OUR PERSONAL SAVIOUR WE ARE INDEED THE RICHEST PERSON IN THIS WORLD SYSTEM.. ACCORDING TO WORLDLY STANDARDS WE MAY SEEM VERY POOR
