Wanting Others’ Approval
Why did I keep making the same mistake? Here I was again hurt by someone else’s disapproval of me, and aching with sadness over the things she’d said about me.
During a challenging season in my life, God had to teach me some hard lessons and show me how dangerous it is to seek acceptance from people over God’s acceptance of me.
I remember reading in John Chapter 2 about a time when Jesus was performing miracles and people were believing in Him. Scripture says Jesus would not entrust Himself to people because He knew their hearts. It taught me that people’s opinions come and go, but that I needed to seek only God’s approval.
The only approval we can count on is God’s. It’s not based on who we are or what we can do, but on who He is and what He did for us through Christ.
