We all know those whose lips are continually bragging, or boasting, of what they have, can do, who they are etc. Does this not turn the stomach of a true saint? It should!
“For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.” 1 John 2:16
“Let not the wise man boast of his wisdom, or the strong man boast of his strength, or the rich man boast of his riches, but let him who boasts boast about this: that he understands and knows me, that I am the LORD.” Jer. 9:23,24
“Let another praise you, and not your own mouth; someone else, and not your own lips!” Proverbs 27:2
Put down your boasting trumpet!
