Proverbs 27:2

Let another man praise thee, and not thine own mouth; a stranger, and not thine own lips.

Que te alabe el extraño, y no tu boca; el forastero, y no tus labios.

This proverb speaks quite well for itself, there is not a whole lot I can say that would make it any more clear. We need to lay our arrogance to the side. Our talents are not from our own merits, they are a gift from God.

Proverbs 27:2

Let another man praise you, and not your own mouth; a stranger, and not your own lips.

Que te alabe el extraño, y no tu boca; el forastero, y no tus labios.

Such wisdom in the words of Proverbs! Have you ever heard another person praising themselves and how it sounds so terrible? Thing is; we all have probably done the same thing. We are all really just full of mud and dirt; it is God through Jesus Christ that cleanses us. Our praise should be of Him, not ourselves. We would be and have nothing if God did not allow or give to us. It’s not our doing, but His.

Matthew 25:35-40

For I was hungry, and you gave me food: I was thirsty, and you gave me drink: I was a stranger, and you took me in: Naked, and you clothed me: I was sick, and you visited me: I was in prison, and you came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we you hungry, and fed you? or thirsty, and gave you drink? When saw we you a stranger, and took you in? or naked, and clothed you? Or when saw we you sick, or in prison, and came unto you? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Since you have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, you have done it unto me.

“Porque tuve hambre, y me disteis de comer; tuve sed, y me disteis de beber; fui forastero, y me recibisteis; estaba desnudo, y me vestisteis; enfermo, y me visitasteis; en la cárcel, y vinisteis a mí. Entonces los justos le responderán, diciendo: “Señor, ¿cuándo te vimos hambriento, y te dimos de comer, o sediento, y te dimos de beber? “¿Y cuándo te vimos como forastero, y te recibimos, o desnudo, y te vestimos? “¿Y cuándo te vimos enfermo, o en la cárcel, y vinimos a ti? Respondiendo el Rey, les dirá: “En verdad os digo que en cuanto lo hicisteis a uno de estos hermanos míos, aun a los más pequeños, a mí lo hicisteis.

I just wrote a hub on this very subject: Mission At Home. Are we feeding the hungry, giving drink to the thirsty? Are we taking in strangers, clothing people with little or no clothes? Do we visit the sick or prisoners? We must each ask ourselves those questions. Instead of judging or looking at each other, let’s look in a mirror.

Father God, please help me be more like your Son Jesus daily. Help me do all that You want from me. You have done so-so much for me. Thank You!
