Not boast

“Love is patient, Love is kind, It does not envy, It does not boast”
Don’t boast

Or you’ll end up like toast

Boast only in the cross of Christ

In life we tend to boast about the materialistic things that we have. That causes us to develop pride in our hearts and move away from what God has planned for us. The only thing we can boast in is the cross of Christ. Through that we endured our suffering and have conquered. It is through the cross that we are accepted and loved by God. The cross is a symbol of sacrifice. It is a symbol of how much God loves us. So He can send His only Son. The reason we can boast in the cross, because if we focus on it, we are obeying the commandment in Matthew 6:33 “Seek first the kingdom, all the things will be added”. The moment we focus on the cross everything else aligns with the will of God.

Let us not boast in ourselves but in the cross
