“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
At times the people around us will understand why we do what we do in our service of God. At other times they will not. It is important in these times to follow God and be obedient to Him. It is more important to win the approval of God than the people around us.
I have found that in time most things we do become clear and people see why you did what you did, even if it didn’t make sense to them at the time.
As the Apostle Paul said in the above verse, “If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant”.
Obedience to God is the key in all things to pleasing God.
Dear God, help me to obedient to You in the things I do. Help me to be more interested in winning Your approval than the people around me. Amen.
