Topic: The Lord’s Commendation Is The Best

Date: Thursday, February 3, 2022

Read: 2 Corinthians 10:18

MEMORISE: Let another man praise you, and not your own mouth; a stranger, and not your own lips (Proverbs 27:2)

EXPOSITION

In any commendation service, whether in honour of a living or dead person, it is unconventional for the one being commended to say things about himself aside the vote of thanks. Similarly, you don’t write recommendation or attestation for yourself. Someone else has to do that on your behalf. The text of today’s Living Water dose warns us against self-commendation, self-glorification, or singing the supposed praise of oneself. Many people have developed the habit of blowing their own trumpets by themselves, no thanks to the emergence of social media, where you can even call yourself what you are not, and can never be. For instance, some people have formed the habit of taking selfies with cars and mansions they don’t own, and sending such on social media, as if they own such cars or mansions. What a self-deceit! May God deliver as many as are being beguiled by such an act.

Unfortunately, many people have formed the habit of singing their own praises. Even what should have been private about them, they make unnecessarily public, although with dire consequences, whether they know or acknowledge it, or not. It is wisdom to follow the biblical injunction, ‘Let another man praise you, and not your own mouth’.

Only few people would hear and celebrate you when you blow your own trumpet yourself, and human celebration don’t last. However, when God blows it for you, the whole world cannot but hear it and celebrate you endlessly. Will you let God? For not he who commends himself is approved, but whom the Lord commends. The Lord’s commendation is the best. Commending yourself can’t take you anywhere. Choose God’s commendation over and against self-commendation.

PRAYER POINTS

1. Lord, help me not to be too fond of myself, and deliver me from the power of pride, before it ruins me.

2. Lord, appropriately commend and recommend me for the right promotion, in line with Your purpose for me.
