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).

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.
