How can you believe if you accept praise [glory, honor, distinction, renown] from one another, yet make no effort to obtain the praise that comes from the only God?This verse stirred some interesting contemplation for me. Who's approval or praise do I seek? What really motivates my decisions?John 5:44
I want to seek the only praise that matters, the praise that comes from God. I want my whole life to be motivated by a desire to hear the words, "Well done, good and faithful servant."
So, how does this affect my daily life? How do I allow this to shape my priorities, my time, my life?
At the beginning of this new year, I am being challenged to take a fresh look at my priorities. And to reshape my life and my daily activities, so that all of my life is moving toward ... "enter into the joy of your Lord. Let’s celebrate together!" (Matt 25:21 NLT)
