I was reading today in Jeremiah 9 and I was challenged and encouraged by verses 23 & 24.
"Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, Let not the mighty man glory in his might, Nor let the rich man glory in his riches; But let him who glories glory in this, That he understands and knows Me, That I am the Lord, Exercising lovingkindness, judgement, And righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight," says the Lord.
It is so easy to start to find pleasure and joy in my plans and accomplishments. I pray that my greatest joy in life will come from knowing and understanding the Great God of the universe.
