John 5:44 How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?
The Pharisees wanted honor from each other more than they wanted honor from God. I have lived the same way many times. I have been more concerned about what men thought of me than what God thought of me.
Jesus is immediately different. He doesnâ€™t care what men think. He is only concerned about what God the Father thinks.
How many times have I made wrong decisions because I wanted to impress people or I wanted recognition. I have done so many time. I still do. It only leads to sin and is based on sin.
Today let’s decide to seek His honor. Not only that we would honor Him with our lives but that He would be pleased with us.
It will be our goal to please Him and not worry about what others think of us!
