People who teach us to “have self-esteem” don’t want us to pay attention to negative assessments of ourselves. However, what if God thinks our behavior is bad? How is He supposed correct us if we are unwilling to receive rebuke or reproof?
Pursue the esteem of God and accept His assessments. Do what is right in His sight and let other assessments fall by the wayside.
If you go to God and feel like you are receiving a negative assessment from Him, don’t recoil from it. Embrace it. For if you do embrace it you can change, you can improve.
If you can win the approval of God, you know you are doing well. However, if the only approval you have is your own, what does it prove?
Don’t pursue self-esteem. Pursue the esteem of God.
