Context is always vital in

July 29, 2019 by Jennie Sottovia

Context is always vital in the scriptures but I am constantly reminded that God hates evil, oppression, and injustice. This verse in Jeremiah speaks to me. We can boast in our intelligence, material wealth, and other things but God is Himself the fountain of living water. Just think how vital normal water is.

Jeremiah 9:23-24
Thus says the Lord: Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the Lord.
