We are not called to live a boastful lifestyle. There ought to be no pride in our life. For those who exalt themselves shall be humbled and those who humble themselves shall be exalted. Christ took on the form of a bond servant. He came to serve, not expecting anything from anyone, because He knew that He was accepted by His father. Therefor let no pride befall you. Live a life of humility and place others before you. Pray for those you know. Bless them and do not curse them.
For those who draw near to God, He draws near to them.
