Isaiah 39:4 Then said he, What have they seen in thine house? And Hezekiah answered, All that is in mine house have they seen: there is nothing among my treasures that I have not shewed them.
Hezekiah was lifted up in pride. God had been kind to him. He wanted to brag. He wanted to show off so when an enemy came to his house Hezekiah showed him everything. Being this open will bring destruction on his country. He has shown them all he has, and they decide to steal it.
Bragging about who you are and what you have may only open the door for Satan to attack. It gives the enemy a clear picture of what there is to take. If you boast, let your boast be in the Lord Jesus Christ and His salvation not in what you have. It is never about things but a person.
