You only need to Make Yahweh Happy

Daily "Words of Wisdom" from Apply

“I do not accept glory from men” (John 5:41).

We should not accept or require praise from our fellow man. We should only seek Yahweh’s approval. Many faker Christians are just as bad as the people of the world in that they are lonely and insecure and will put up with anyone as long as they get attention. This is why girls have boyfriends who beat them. This is why peer pressure gets kids to have premarital sex, smoke, use drugs. If you only cared about making YHWH happy, then you wouldn’t put up with the ridiculous behavior of people of this world. Jesus sets us straight in today’s scripture by reminding us that we should not accept glory from men.
