Read Jeremiah 7-9
But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD. Jeremiah 9:24
God spoke to Jeremiah, reminding him that glory doesn't come from money and power, but from understanding and knowing the Lord. This was just as difficult a concept in Jeremiah's time as it is in ours.
Instead, we are to be aware of the lovingkindness that God shows to us every day. We are surrounded by moments of pure love and blessings that comes straight from our Heavenly Father. Keep a gratitude journal for a week and you'll see exactly how kind and loving He truly is.
We also learn to understand His judgment and His righteousness in very real ways. Some days it seems like the evil are blessed for the things they corrupt, but God's glory is seen again and again when He judges and punishes the wicked. A right relationship with the Lord changes everything.
These things are His delight – pure joy. He delights in loving us, showing us kindness, having us obey His commands and becoming a little more like Jesus every day. When we understand these things, we will never want to glory in ourselves or in our money, but in the glory of God Himself.
