This is what the Lord says: The wise person should not boast in his wisdom; the strong should not boast in his strength; the wealthy should not boast in his wealth. But the one who boasts should boast in this: that he knows me; that I am the Lord who exerciseths lovingkindness, justice, and righteousness on the earth. For in these things I delight. This is the Lord’s declaration. Jeremiah 9:23-24
People are interested in talent. God is impressed by character.
