10/17/14 Daily Devotion

James 4:16 As it is, you boast and brag. All such boasting is evil.

Why does James teach that boasting is bad? Why can’t we do a little bragging once in awhile? Boasting changes our attitude; bragging changes our priorities. When we brag or boast, we are focusing on ourselves. As we focus on ourselves, we lose sight of God. Slowly He begins to fade away, until one day we don’t ever consider His opinion or speak of His presence within our lives. There is good news. We can stop bragging and turn to God. We can stop boasting in ourselves and begin to boast about all that He has done within our lives.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help my life boast about You and Your love for mankind.
