As I’m reading through Job I’m noting that he’s getting borderline prideful defending himself. I have the NLT Life Application Bible, and similarly in the footnotes it states, “Job was walking a fine line between bragging about past accomplishments an recalling good deeds in order to answer the charges against him…”
I wonder how often I do the same thing… Sobering fact! I think I’m very borderline prideful at times. I always feel I have to share my [similar] story – instead of letting others bask in the lime light for a bit. Sometimes I “brag” on Facebook or Twitter too much over certain things. I must be mindful of what comes out of my mouth.
