For The Real You

Approval?

2 Cor. 10 : 17: 18

“But, “Let him who boasts boast in the Lord.” For it is not the one who commends himself who is approved, but the one whom the Lord
commends.”

We live in a time where self propagation is the order of day! We want to excel, be the best, get the biggest promotion or secure the most financially secure position! We get caught on the comparison wheel of “My kids are and my kids can and my kids won! Not only does our discontent send us in relentless pursuit of ‘more’ at all cost, but we can’t keep our mouths shut about the good things we’ve accomplished. Oh don’t we like to brag and build ourselves up? After all, if we don’t, no one else will, or so we think. What a turn off our boasting invites. We forget in God’s economy it’s our spirit of humility that receives God’s stamp of approval and true honor in His sight and as well, in our circles of influence. Our God desires for us to enjoy abundant life to the fullest; to be content as we recognize that every good thing is from His hand of blessing. Every skill, and every talent has been handed over to us by a Sovereign Lord for us to use for His glory!
