boast

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)

To believe, get old and go away…

What do you have that God has not given you? And if all you have is from God, why boast as though you have accomplished something on your own? (1 Corinthians 4:7)
God has given you such a long life so that you would know him better and love him more. Now, even if you feel poor and unworthy you hope to depart from this earth into heavenly paradise.
