Defending his actions and words that have come under attack from some of the Corinthian believers, Paul plainly sets out that his confidence, his "boasting," has nothing to do with personal recognition or gain, but rather has to do with God, and how He has empowered Paul to proclaim the Gospel message and teach and exhort those who have chosen to follow Christ.
"'Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.' For it is not the one who commends himself who is approved, but the one whom the Lord commends" (vs. 17-18).
We all have experience with personal boasting, but maybe not so much with boasting for God. So what does you "boasting in the Lord" look like? Any examples you care to share from the past couple of weeks? Tami
