'For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world.' 1 John 2:16
"Why do you boast and brag of earthly accomplishments, giving no thought to the God who has given you the knowledge, strength and position to accomplish those things you are so proud of?

Your lives, your talents your position... are all a gift from a loving Father yet you fail to take notice as you stand to receive the accolades. All that you have has come from My hand. All that you are or will ever hope to be is My gift to you. Each one is given that they in turn might give to others. What have you given to others in return for the abundant gifts you have received?

On what will you stand should the day come when all that you have is taken from you? Of what then will you boast and brag?"

'For the wicked boasts of his heart's desire, And the greedy man curses and spurns the LORD.' Psalm 10:3
'May the LORD cut off all flattering lips, The tongue that speaks great things; Who have said, "With our tongue we will prevail; Our lips are our own; who is lord over us?' Psalm 12:3-4
'But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy...' 2 Timothy 3:1-2

  1. Received a rather harsh comment, which I will not post, but wanting to address the 'anonymous comment' .. God is a god of love & would not speak thus to His people. A friend commented: The milk of the Word is: "God loves me." The meat of the Word is: "If we love God, we will obey Him!"
