Bible verses about braggers
In Scripture, we see that God does not approve of boasters. God commands us to humble ourselves before Him. Showing off and praising yourself never gives God glory.
If you are going to boast, then boast in the Lord. A good example of sinful braggers in Scripture were the self-righteous Pharisees.
Be on guard because pride stops people from seeing the truth and makes people think they are something or are better than others, which is not true. Always live with humility. Boast to everyone what Christ did on that cross for us.
