The Humility of Biblical Boasting

1 Thessalonians 2:17-20; 1 Thessalonians 3:1-13
The Bible has quite a bit to say about boasting, but not all of it is bad. The Scriptures in general stand in marked challenge to our culture’s views of pride and humility, and this passage of Paul’s letter to the church at Thessalonica gives insight into the proper place of boasting in the humility to which God calls all people–leaders, followers, believers in general, and even unbelievers.
