Be brave and courageous
Today so many of us are addicted to approval but this has been going on forever – people naturally want approval for everything until it becomes more important than God’s approval. In Jesus opening line of his address to the universe, people are all doing good things, but for the wrong reasons. Matthew 6: 1 Be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.
There is a cost when you seek only God’s approval- often people are not pleased with you. Galatians 1: 10 Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.
Who will you please?
