Devotion: Commend Them

For not he that commendeth himself is approved, but whom the Lord commendeth. (KJV) ( 2 Corinthians 10:18 )

It can be hard being around someone who is quick to tell you of their accomplishments and boast about themselves. Yet, we, ourselves, get carried away in seeking praise when we just found success.

Boasting begins to inflate our identity of ourselves and places importance on human opinions. Are we seeking human praise over the invaluable praise of God?

The next time you feel a great sense of accomplishment, try telling God first. He will delight that you are coming to Him and He will praise you greatly.
