"If your identity is tied to man’s praise, you’ll be eternally discontent. People are fickle. They’re here today and gone tomorrow. They’re for you one day, against you the next. They love you when you agree with them, dislike you when you don’t.
Yet, we love human praise. Exhibit A: Instagram, SnapChat and Facebook. While I love social media, they’re also platforms that perpetuate flattery. You post pictures about your life hoping the world will “like” it. You need the approval.
Jesus, however, didn’t need the praise and glory of men. He didn’t care what they thought. His only concern was doing the will of God. This attitude is what the world is desperate to see.
Let’s be honest, it’s hard to point people to Jesus if you need their approval." I read this today and it's what's been on my heart, so I wanted to share. I have been spending my time cultivating the relationships I have. Its been a rough week for many in my life but I've been served and loved by those around me so diligently. My heart hurts for those who seek joy in earthly things because, trust me, it won't fill you 💗 Also, please enjoy this photo of my son being his silly self 💓
