No Need to Boast

Bible Reading: 1Corinthians 4:1-21

For who makes you so superior? What do you have that you didn’t receive? If, in fact, you did receive it, why do you boast as if you hadn’t received it? 1 Corinthians 4:7 CSB

Some basic things a lot of people fall into, is boasting, pride and favouritism. We did not come to this world in competition with one another. There is no need to compare yourself with other people’s successes. For the fact ‘that Nigeria time is ahead of United States of America does not make Nigeria better than America. You may graduate from school before me, that does not mean you will get job before me or richer before me. You may be married before me but it may not make you have children before me consider these facts. A man made millions of Naira before the age of 25 but died at 49 but the other made million at 50 and enjoyed his wealth to 95 years,  which one benefited the more? Whatever you get in this world is by the grace of God. It’s the gift of God, therefore no need to boast or complain for lack of those things. Everything you are and will be is by the grace of God.

Prayer Point: O Lord, give me wisdom to be acceptable before you.
