What God Delights In...

This is what the LORD says:
"Let not the wise man boast of his wisdom
or the strong man boast of his strength
or the rich man boast of his riches,

but let him who boasts boast about this:
that he understands and knows me,
that I am the LORD, who exercises kindness,
justice and righteousness on earth,
for in these I delight,"
declares the LORD.

Jer 9:23-24

I have been studying biblical references where i find what God deserves to be given credit for in different aspects of life.

This verse especially stood out.

The things that i would desire most as a man: Strength, Riches, & Wisdom are not to be boasted of!!!

Instead i am to boast in knowing the Lord who exercises kindness, justice, and righteousness.

HOW INTERESTING!!! The things God delights in are not hard to attain or not just for the gifted. We may not all come by strength, riches, and wisdom even if we try, but administering kindness, justice, and righteousness in your world are only really a choice away!

This has been my verse for the last month or so. So good.
