In what you should glory

Jeremiah Bible Background

10.23.2017 – Old Testament: Jer 9.23–24

To read the Bible in a year, read Jeremiah 9–10 on October 23, In the year of our Lord 2017

By Don Ruhl

Look at the world! Look at all the things in which they say we should glory, in contrast, listen to what the Lord of heaven and earth says,

Thus says the LORD:
“Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom,
Let not the mighty man glory in his might,
Nor let the rich man glory in his riches;
But let him who glories glory in this,
That he understands and knows Me,
That I am the LORD, exercising lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth.
For in these I delight,” says the LORD.
(Jeremiah 9.23–24) 

Friends, just make it your aim in life that you will know and understand the Lord, then you will have something in which to glory.

Questions:

  • What are you good at doing?
  • Do you place it above knowing the Lord?
