More Than Bread Devotional for 8/1/12

30  If I must boast, I will boast of the things that show my weakness.  – 2 Corinthians 11:30

I find it funny that Paul says this after rattling off a list of circumstances that many of us feel might be “boast-worthy” in terms of hardship and persecution.  Yet, he says that he must boast of the things that show his weakness.  Paul didn’t see the trials that he had gone through as some sort of accomplishment as much as they were a testimony to God who saw him through them all.  That is worth boasting about any day.
