Boasting :

~ Never talk of what you have done, but go on to something else. An officer rode up to his general, and said, “Sir, we have taken two guns from the enemy.” “It is well,” said the general, “take two more.”

The moment we glorify ourselves, since there is room for one glory only in the universe, we set ourselves up as rivals to the Most High.

So much remains to be accomplished that we have no time to consider what has been done.

~C.H Spurgeon 

Psa 34:2  "My soul makes its boast in the LORD; let the humble hear and be glad."

Excellent post very true. There isn't time to broadcast our 'accomplishments', if we aren't speaking of Christ, we should be in prayer for others.

" but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the LORD who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth." Jeremiah 9:24
