Text: 1Cor 4:7

7. For what gives you the right to make such a judgment? What do you have that God hasn’t given you? And if everything you have is from God, why boast as though it were not a gift?

NLT

What do you have that God hasn't given you? Your achievements are no result of hard work alone for there are some who are more hard working but could not achieve greatness.

‘The Lord makes some poor and others rich; he brings some down and lifts others up’- 1 Sam 2:7 NLT

The greatest achievement in life is salvation; even this is a gift.

“God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God”-Eph 2:8 NLT

Can you give a sincere answer to these questions?

Did you choose the family to which you were born?

Did you choose your country of origin?

What did you contribute to your physical make up or your intelligence, are you better than those born brain damaged? etc?

If these things are gifts to you from God then you shouldn't boast or be proud about them, instead, use them to glorify God who gave them to you.

Go with this understanding today that you are who you are because of God's grace. Spend today thanking God and acknowledging Him.

Prayer: ask God to forgive you of any pride and boasting.

Ask God to help you to live glorifying him.
