Boasting – September 8, 2019

Isaiah 1.1-2.22; 2 Corinthians 10.1-18; Psalm 52.1-9; Proverbs 22.26-27

If you are like most people, you probably have an accomplishment in your life that you enjoy boasting about, in the most humble sort of way, I mean. There are things we do that bring us pride and joy, things that demonstrate some ability we have crafted and honed in order to be useful in the world in which we live. But how often do you hear people boast in the Lord? What would it take for us to transform our own boasting–even when it is probably not considered wrong–into a moment in which we get to highlight the Lord’s working through us?

Questions:

Why is it so troubling for us when our children rebel?

How does God demonstrate his “mighty weapons” today?

What happens when we trust in our wealth more than we trust in the Lord? Wealth is powerful; how can we keep from trusting too much in it?

Why would we consider not putting up security for someone sound advice?
