2 Corinthians 11:12
But I will continue to do what I am doing, in order to cut off the opportunity of those who want an opportunity to be regarded just as we are in what they are boasting about.
2 Corinthians 11:21-23
21
I say this to [our] shame: we have been weak. But in whatever anyone dares [to boast]-- I am talking foolishly-- I also dare:
22
Are they Hebrews? So am I. Are they Israelites? So am I. Are they the seed of Abraham? So am I.
23
Are they servants of Christ? I'm talking like a madman-- I'm a better one: with far more labors, many more imprisonments, far worse beatings, near death many times.
2 Corinthians 10:12-18
12
For we don't dare classify or compare ourselves with some who commend themselves. But in measuring themselves by themselves and comparing themselves to themselves, they lack understanding.
13
We, however, will not boast beyond measure, but according to the measure of the area [of ministry] that God has assigned to us, [which] reaches even to you.
14
For we are not overextending ourselves, as if we had not reached you, since we have come to you with the gospel of Christ.
15
We are not bragging beyond measure about other people's labors. But we have the hope that as your faith increases, our area [of ministry] will be greatly enlarged,
16
so that we may preach the gospel to the regions beyond you, not boasting about what has already been done in someone else's area [of ministry].
17
So the one who boasts must boast in the Lord.
18
For it is not the one commending himself who is approved, but the one the Lord commends.
Jeremiah 9:23
This is what the LORD says: The wise must not boast in his wisdom; the mighty must not boast in his might; the rich must not boast in his riches.
Jeremiah 9:24
But the one who boasts should boast in this, that he understands and knows Me-- that I am the LORD, showing faithful love, justice, and righteousness on the earth, for I delight in these things. [This is] the LORD's declaration.
1 Corinthians 4:10
We are fools for Christ, but you are wise in Christ! We are weak, but you are strong! You are distinguished, but we are dishonored!
1 Peter 1:24
For All flesh is like grass, and all its glory like a flower of the grass. The grass withers, and the flower drops off,
I will
2 Corinthians 12:5
I will boast about this person, but not about myself, except of my weaknesses.
2 Corinthians 12:6
For if I want to boast, I will not be a fool, because I will be telling the truth. But I will spare you, so that no one can credit me with something beyond what he sees in me or hears from me,
2 Corinthians 12:9
But He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness." Therefore, I will most gladly boast all the more about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may reside in me.
2 Corinthians 12:11
I have become a fool; you forced it on me. I ought to have been recommended by you, since I am in no way inferior to the "super-apostles," even though I am nothing.
