The Future Is As Bright As The Promises Of God

“For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.” John 12:43 (KJV)
During His earthly ministry Jesus warned against doing even the most praiseworthy things, such as praying, fasting, and giving, for the purpose of pleasing the neighbors. What is done for human approval, He said, will bring no added honor from God (Matthew 6:1-18). If the purpose is to please and honor God, however, that should be evident to the neighbors as well (Matthew 5:16). God’s opinion must come first, because His judgment is the one that matters!
