RIGHTEOUSNESS . . . Something to boast about . . . boast about knowing God

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, 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.” (Reference: Jeremiah 9:23-24 )

Pretend, beloved, that this is a quiz.

Who delights in kindness?

Who delights in justice?

Who delights in righteousness?

If you know the answer to these three things, you can boast about it!

Do you have insight and understanding about the Being who delights in these things?

If your answer is yes, you can boast about it!

Do YOU know how to exercise kindness?

Do YOU know how to exercise justice?

Do YOU know how to exercise righteousness on the earth?

If can answer YES to these three things, you can boast about it!

All other possessions, treasures, and knowledge that are based on the attributes of this world are not worth boasting about. May you, beloved, boast with all the saints and spiritual forefathers & foremothers that have gone before us. Selah!

About Carole Boshart

I have two blogs on WordPress. "A Simple Desire" which is based on the daily "Sips of Scripture" published and sent out by Third Way Cafe. "Pondering From the Pacific" is based on my reflections on the world - sometimes religious/spiritual, and sometimes not so much.
