Godís Delight


"Thus says the Lord, 'Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches: But let him that glories glory in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the Lord.'"(Jeremiah 9:23-24) We may have the wisdom of Solomon, the might of Samson, or the riches of Abraham, but God says that that is nothing to get excited about. We should instead be rejoicing if we know God and understand what it is that pleases Him. He delights in loving kindness, judgment, and righteousness. And there is no greater evidence of these things than in the cross of Calvary. It was there that He once and for all displayed His love, His justice, and His righteousness. There goes another minute. Gone forever. Go share your faith while you still have time.
