Much of what is wrong with our society today stems from people who want to be loved or respected or understood or appreciated by other human beings. People will disappoint you; God will not. It’s that simple.
Set your mind to love people, not entrust your soul to their decisions. Rather, entrust the well-being of your soul only to God. He already loves and understands you. Give Him reason to respect and appreciate you.
This means seeking the well-being of others – not their approval. Only when you stop and think about this do you realize what a difference there can be between the two.
Spend some time thinking about how little you have sought God’s approval of your thoughts and actions. And then repent.
