Here’s one among several favorite Scripture passages: This is what the LORD says: “The wise person should not boast in his wisdom; the strong should not boast in his strength; the wealthy should not boast in his wealth. But the one who boasts should boast in this: that he understands and knows me—that I am the LORD, showing faithful love, justice, and righteousness on the earth, for I delight in these things.” This is the LORD’s declaration. Jeremiah 9:23-24
