      so that, just as it is written, "LET HIM WHO BOASTS, BOAST IN THE LORD."

      2 Corinthians 10:17
      But HE WHO BOASTS IS TO BOAST IN THE LORD.

      Psalm 34:2
      My soul will make its boast in the LORD; The humble will hear it and rejoice.

      Psalm 44:8
      In God we have boasted all day long, And we will give thanks to Your name forever. Selah.

      Psalm 20:7
      Some boast in chariots and some in horses, But we will boast in the name of the LORD, our God.

      Romans 15:17
      Therefore in Christ Jesus I have found reason for boasting in things pertaining to God.

      Hebrews 3:6
      but Christ was faithful as a Son over His house--whose house we are, if we hold fast our confidence and the boast of our hope firm until the end.

      Galatians 6:4
      But may it never be that I would boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

      Psalm 34:2
      My soul will make its boast in the LORD; The humble will hear it and rejoice.

      "Christianity does not require more work but more trust." Pr. Jonathan Fisk
      "Bearing fruit does not make you a branch. A branch is a branch because it grows from the vine." Pr. Jonathan Fisk
      "A Christian's life is not defined by what the Christian does. It is defined by Christ and what He has done for us." Pr. Rolf David Preus

      Good stuff, thank you!


      We live in a modern world where humility is considered weak and bad.... where self-promotion = self esteem = emotional health.

      And the "old Adam" DEMANDS that self is the reason for everything good in the life of self. SELF just has to be the keystone, the critical factor in everything (even salvation).
      We are justified by works - just not our own.

      "let no one deceive you. The one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous" - 1John 3:7
      Indeed, our Eternal lot is determined by our obedience and our behavior. (mdb)

      That's aimed at people who boast in their works instead of in God's works for our eternal salvation.

      .
      Other translations substitute "boastful" here with 'foolish' or 'arrogant'. And I'd agree that one who boasts in self is all of those things. Our boast should be in the Lord and all he has done for us.
