INSPIRATIONAL:The kind of glory that God approves

“Thus said the Lord, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches:  But let him that glories glory in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord which exercise loving-kindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, said the Lord.” (Jeremiah 9:23-24)

There are so many things in this world that anyone can glory for-education, beauty, money, house, good career, good family and many others.  But none of this really counts for they soon pass away. The only glory that God approves is that of knowing Him. Why? Here is what the Bible says:

“Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, and carry on business and make money.”  Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.  Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.”  As it is, you boast and brag. All such boasting is evil.  Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn’t do it, sins.” (James 4:13-17)

I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abides in me, and I in him, the same brings forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.(John 15:5)

“For in him we live and move and exist. As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring” (Acts 17:28)
