Seek NOT the APPROVAL of people

Galatians 1:10

King James Version

10 For do I now persuade men, 

or God? 

or do I seek to please men? 

for if I yet pleased men, 

I should not be the servant of Christ.

In this world, we will be grossly disappointed, if we seek the approval of man.

Do you love, so you will be loved?

Do you work, so your work will be appreciated?

Do you live, so your life will be appreciated?

You may just be in for great disappointment.

For we are all flesh.

Subject to the weakness of flesh.

In man, is lust.

Galatians 5:17

King James Version

17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, 

and the Spirit against the flesh: 

and these are contrary the one to the other: 

so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.

In man, is corruption.

2 Peter 2:19

King James Version

19 While they promise them liberty, 

they themselves are the servants of corruption

for of whom a man is overcome, 

of the same is he brought in bondage.

In man, is wickedness.

Habakkuk 1:4

King James Version

4 Therefore the law is slacked, 

and judgment doth never go forth: 

for the wicked doth compass about the righteous; 

therefore wrong judgment proceedeth.

If it we were not all that, why else did GOD send His SON?

Luke 19:10

King James Version

10 For the Son of man 

is come to seek 

and to save 

that which was lost.

Scripture asks we not be conformed to this world.

Romans 12:2

King James Version

2 And be not conformed to this world: 

but be ye transformed 

by the renewing of your mind, 

that ye may prove what is that good, 

and acceptable, 

and perfect, 

will of God.

Colossians 3:1-2

King James Version

3 If ye then be risen with Christ, 

seek those things which are above, 

where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.

2 Set your affection on things above, 

not on things on the earth.

Ask nothing from man.

He cannot deliver the love you seek.

Only JESUS can.

Not to mean there are no decent people around.

There are, but only God is good.

JESUS said so, Himself.

Luke 18:19

King James Version

19 And Jesus said unto him, 

Why callest thou me good? 

none is good, 

save one, 

that is, 


Unless we are born again, subject to SPIRIT, and not flesh, we cannot love as CHRIST loved.

John 13:34

King James Version

34 A new commandment I give unto you, 

That ye love one another; 

as I have loved you

that ye also love one another.

It's good to have our eyes opened.

That the love, and approval we seek, can only come from God.

If He hadn't, He would not have sent His Son.

John 3:16

King James Version

16 For God so loved the world,

 that he gave his only begotten Son, 

that whosoever believeth in him 

should not perish, 

but have everlasting life.

As I sought this thread, I had not realized the BIBLE was replete with verses on seeking approval from GOD ALONE.

That's for the next post.

Only through JESUS, can we love, and appreciate others.

There's no need to seek the world's faulty, flighty approval.

Seek God instead.

Matthew 6:33

King James Version

33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, 

and his righteousness; 

and all these things shall be added unto you.
