Building better boasting

Glen Scrivener has written a simply outstanding meditation on 1 Corinthians and boasting. Here's a sample from near the beginning of the essay:
Wisdom, strength, riches - do they tell you who you are? Is that where you turn for an ego boost? We really- Forget that stuff. That’s small-time boasting. That’s like being proud of your long bushy nasal hair. “Hey guys, check out my new perm!” You’re being ridiculous. Stop it.
It gets better; please read the whole thing.
