It does not boast. (060/365)
1 Corinthians 13:4-7 "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in the evil but rejoices in the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres."
When I think of being boastful, an aristocrat definitely comes to mind. My dictionary calls boast as someone who is proud or brags about their materialistic collections that are worth something. Love is definitely not within someone who boasts. It doesn't necessarily mean someone who boats ABOUT their love, because all love can be done in anything, not just from a person. Not sure if that makes sense....BUT! Perfect love...is never boastful.
ps. I wish you could all see this BEAUTIFUL 1800's coat my grandma has. Floor length, black velvet. She told me that the designer it was made by, designed for Marie Antoinette. I almost wanted to faint! I love Marie. CHECK OUT THE HUGE RIFLE BEHIND ME! hahaha
