Approval of Others
Oh how convicted I am be these words!! And how often lately I have seen my sin in this regard. I have wanted people to think I'm important because of my studies; I've wanted them to be impressed with my intellect, obedience, hard work, servanthood. There ARE times when I am just providing information, or am feeling overwhelmed & looking for support or encouragement, but mixed in there the enemy tempts me with opportunities to seek & lap up the approval of others! Ugh! God assures me that I am learning. I am eager, though, for the freedom that humility brings!
