Give God the Glory

2 Corinthians 10:17 “But he that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.”

Bragging and boasting is a dangerous thing.  God desires that if any glory is to be given then it needs to be given to the Lord.  Many times we forget to give credit, where credit is due.  My heart breaks over the amount of times I have failed to glorify God when He deserved all the credit.  Many times we give ourselves credit when things go well, and give God all the credit when things go wrong. Even when we brag on others, it is usually with selfish intentions. We must come to the place in our lives where God deserves to get all the Glory.  If we look inside the intentions of our heart we find selfishness at each corner.  We forget that God can promote us just as much as we can promote ourselves.  We must move the intentions of our hearts away from our selfish boastings.  The Lord is the only one that needs to get the credit.  We need to learn to brag on the Lord.  Give God the Glory, He deserves it!

Today’s Challenge:  Practice bragging on the Lord today!
