Oh, Here She Comes!

If you grew up in my era, the words “She’s a maneater” is coming to mind. The type of person I will address here can also be a “he” (but not a man eater😂). 
This person is quick to brag. You won’t have to ask how great this man or woman is because he/she will tell you within a few minutes of meeting. These people will tell you what they know, who they know, and what they don’t know. They will tell how religious they are and how many generations of preachers they came from. I know you know the type. Some people are attracted to this type. Vanity seems to be the norm of the day while God is searching high and low for some humble people who realize that their talent and whatever they have going for themselves comes from God.

Proverbs 27:2 says it well: “Let another man praise you, and not your own mouth; A stranger, and not your own lips.” You and I will ruin our “credibility” by boasting arrogantly about how awesome we are. Let someone else speak on your behalf or let your ability speak for itself.

We can all so easily fall into this trap. Before you find yourself becoming annoyingly cocky, think about what you think of those who brag on themselves. If that doesn’t bother you, the last resort may be something tragic to deflate your ego. Something to think about….

  1. Ha! I remember that song. There is something behind the idea of people who try to devour us. I’ve been thinking along similar lines, people who want to teach, in the sense of those who insist on schooling us on everything, and faith is now all about telling everyone else what to do.
