A Fish in the Hand is worth 2 in the Sea

Jesus said to them, “Bring some of the fish which you have just caught.” John 21:10 They had been fishing all night and caught nothing until Jesus came along. His Word into their situation caused huge fruitfulness. They made a large catch that morning as they threw the net over the other side of the boat following His word. As they came to shore Jesus asked them to join him for breakfast. He already had fish on the fire. Yet he says to them “BRING some of the fish which you have just caught." He doesn't need the fish. He wants to celebrate with their success. 'Come on show us what you've done.' We need to celebrate our successes, enjoy our discoveries, thank God that every blessing is our in Christ. Shrinking from the glory of what God has done in our lives is to steal glory from Him.

Go ahead … Boast!

But “he who glories, let him glory in the Lord.” 2 Corinthians 10:17 Paul in this passage is talking about boasting. To give glory is, simply put, to boast in another. How do you boast? "You should have seen how good I was!" "I have an incredible new car, LOOK!" "I am one of the best employees in my company" Boasting in this manner is a put off to anyone. But using this same manner toward another is as powerfully positive as the other is negative. The greatest glory of a man is to give glory, his greatest honour is in giving honour. Boast in the lord and you'll have no need to boast in you. His glory will rest on you as you give glory to Him.
