boast

About presence and future

Let not a wise man boast of his wisdom, and let not the mighty man  boast of his might, let not a rich man boast of his riches; but let him who boasts boast of this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord who exercises loving-kindness, justice, and righteousness on earth; for I delight in these things, declarses the Lord. (Jeremiah 9:23-24)

Let us not become boastful

Let us not become boastful, challenging one another, envying one another. (Galatians 5:26)
One day Jesus asked those who interrogated him:
How can you believe, when you receive glory from one another and you do not seek the glory that is from the one and only God? (John 5:44)
Those seeking the approval of men will be slaves of vainglory and cannot truly believe in Christ which sought only the glory that comes from God alone.

Life, a mirror

"For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I shall know fully just as I also have been fully known." (I Corinthians 13:12)
