“Give yourself a pat on the back – you’ve done such a great job!”
Ever notice how difficult it is to give yourself a pat on the back?
It takes someone else to do it for us. When we do it ourselves it becomes a self proclamation and is boasting. Scripture tells us…
“Boast no more so very proudly, Do not let arrogance come out of your mouth; For the LORD is a God of knowledge, And with Him actions are weighed. 1 Samuel 2:3
“If we are going to boast then let’s boast about the Lord… My soul will make its boast in the LORD; The humble will hear it and rejoice.” Psalm 34:2
“Heavenly Father please let those who boast – boast in You. For it is not the one who commends himself who is approved, but the one whom You commend. Amen.” 2 Corinthians 10:17,18.
