Boast in yourself, it is the way of the world. Tell everyone all the wonderful things you do and how you matter. One person speaks over the other, always itching to have the last word.
2 Corinthians 3:1-6,8-9,12,14,16-18 NLT
Are we beginning to praise ourselves again? Are we like others, who need to bring you letters of recommendation, or who ask you to write such letters on their behalf? Surely not!  The only letter of recommendation we need is you yourselves. Your lives are a letter written in our hearts; everyone can read it and recognize our good work among you.  Clearly, you are a letter from Christ showing the result of our ministry among you. This “letter” is written not with pen and ink, but with the Spirit of the living God. It is carved not on tablets of stone, but on human hearts.
Each day we must choose to be more like Jesus, to show patience, compassion and relate with open eyes and Hearts. Actually, open ears to hear would be a key sense to include.
Two ears, one mouth is for a purpose. More listening, less eagerness to tear down another person created in the Image of God.
The world would say truth of God is irrelevant because we all have our opinions, idols, and no one should step on another.
Here’s the problem, there is only One King who has stood the test of time, He is Jesus the lover of your soul, He loves you, He died for you a sinners death on the cross for you. He believes in your ability to love like He does. But you must get to know who He is and then He will transform your attitude. Boast in Him and let Him direct your words.
 We are confident of all this because of our great trust in God through Christ.  It is not that we think we are qualified to do anything on our own. Our qualification comes from God.  He has enabled us to be ministers of his new covenant. This is a covenant not of written laws, but of the Spirit. The old written covenant ends in death; but under the new covenant, the Spirit gives life.
So let’s stop boasting in ourselves, let’s bring our lives, our faults, our joys to Him and let Him write on the tablet of our hearts, you are treasured, known, His delight and Let the Spirit of God do amazing things in your relationships.
Your scripture reminds us the Holy Spirit gives life, we want to trust Your plan. Help us with our unbelief. We want to put to death the false teachings of the world.
8] Shouldn’t we expect far greater glory under the new way, now that the Holy Spirit is giving life?  If the old way, which brings condemnation, was glorious, how much more glorious is the new way, which makes us right with God!
This new way of life, brings confidence, and boldness as you walk with Him.
 Since this new way gives us such confidence, we can be very bold.  But the people’s minds were hardened, and to this day whenever the old covenant is being read, the same veil covers their minds so they cannot understand the truth. And this veil can be removed only by believing in Christ.
Whenever someone turns to the Lord, their eyes are opened, the obstacles to wisdom and truth are no longer a block to life over death.
16] But whenever someone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.  For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.  So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord-who is the Spirit-makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image.
Lord, Holy Spirit, make us more like You, help to a remove the veil that blocks our face; our eyes need to see You, our ears need to tune into Your voice, change our lives for Your glory.
