Approval of God or Others

Whether we are looking for a job or trying to become friends with others, we are constantly trying to win the approval of others. We will do anything to become a member of a particular group so that we feel that we belong. Is that really what we need to be doing?

As Christians, we should be striving to seek the approval of God. By following the teachings of His son, Christ Jesus, and by following the Word, we can become "good and faithful servants".

With the holidays coming up quickly, let us strive to help those around us and demonstrate God's love in a most profound way. Help those who need help. Feed those who are hungry. Give water to those who are thirsty.

Paul reminded the church in Galatia that we need to be Christ's servant and not to seek the approval of people but of God.

Obviously, I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant. Galatians 1:10 (NLT)
