I was always taught that boasting was something we shouldn’t do. i.e. we should not talk with excessive pride and self-satisfaction about someone’s achievements, possessions, or abilities – that could be about ourselves or someone else.
So really, we shouldn’t show off! I’m laughing as I type, as I’m sure we can all think of people in our lives who regularly and unashamed ‘show off’!
But is boasting about someone always the wrong thing to do? No, I don’t believe it is. Isn’t telling others about Christ and the wonderful things He can do for us boasting? And that is definitely not wrong is it?
Boasting about God and Christ, is definitely the right thing to do!
