When you attend high school reunions, weddings, funerals or other social events, people invariably ask about your accomplishments. Who did you marry? What career did you choose? Where are you sending your kids for college? Where do you spend vacations?
And don’t you love answering that your husband is a prestigious man? Or that your employer absolutely depends on you? Or that your kids each chose well-known universities and consistently make the dean’s list? Or that you’ve been abroad just recently and happen to have pictures on your iPhone.
We love boasting about ourselves!
But as Christians, we should boast only in Jesus Christ and what He has done to save wretches like us. His love should both puzzle us and fill us with overwhelming joy! If we must boast, let us boast in what He has done for us.
