Thursday, October 11 — Psalm 118:15–21
2 Samuel 2; John 6:52–59
Thus says the Lord: Do not let the wise boast in their wisdom, do not let the mighty boast in their might, do not let the wealthy boast in their wealth; but let those who boast in this, that they understand and know me. Jeremiah 9:23–24
If those who are nothing think they are something, they deceive themselves. All must test their own work. Galatians 6:3–4
Benevolent God, forgive us our false sense of pride and our boastful ways. Keep us mindful of you, our one true object for adulation. Amen.
