January 10, 2019: Something Real to Boast about

 

Jeremiah 9:23-24 (NIV)
23  This is what the LORD says: “Let not the wise man boast of his wisdom or the strong man boast of his strength or the rich man boast of his riches, 24  but let him who boasts boast about this: that he understands and knows me, that I am the LORD, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight,” declares the LORD.

 

It happens often at office parties and school reunions, people spend time telling others how much they have done and what they have accomplished.  This is the way many have of finding worth in this life.  How long does it last for them we have no idea.  One thing we do know is that whatever they have done will perish at death.

Is there anything that we can give our lives to that will last past this life that will add joy to our step and a smile on our face?  Absolutely!

Give yourself to know and worship God as revealed in the Bible.  This is something that will outlast this world.  It is the one thing that God says he delights in.  Do you want to bring delight to your Father in Heaven? Then take some time today to get alone and cry out to Him as you read and meditate on His Word. Look to Him for everything and seek him with every breath and every step.  He delights in you when you do this.

How about it church, let us live to be a delight to God.
