The Approval Of God Or The Applause Of Men?

The Approval Of God Or The Applause Of Men? - Today's lesson "The Approval Of God Or The Applause Of Men", comes from Matthew 25:20-21 says, " And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more. His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord." KJV

Everyone loves to be rewarded, praised and congratulated for their efforts and hard work, that's just a natural part of life. Hearing "well done", are the most important words we can hear from God. It would mean that whatever He had called us to do in this life, regardless of whether others approved or not, that He was satisfied that we had done a good job and have completed the assignment He had given unto us. It is great to get men to applaud you, slap you on the back and tell you what good job you are doing, but as you move through your life, think not about the applause of men, but rather the approval of God.

Seek the approval of God, not the applause of men.
