Lent 2017 – Day Twenty-Nine
If we live our lives for the approval of people then we will miss the point. We should live our lives for the approval of God. What God thinks of us should be what matters to us. Pleasing man to the displeasure of God is something I always tell God to help me avoid. When faced with a decision to please God or please man, I choose to please God and not people. As Paul puts it, “If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant.”
Let us seek the approval of God in all things and not the approval of man.
