We must live to seek God’s approval first. SOMETIMES, doing what pleases God also pleases others (especially godly people), but that is not always the case. The voice of men can never always be the voice of God (unlike the world says). God has many enemies who love evil more than good. We must balance properly the priority of being approved by God with the desire to also be approved by others.
For we speak as messengers approved by God to be entrusted with the Good News. Our purpose is to please God, not people. He alone examines the motives of our hearts (1Thess 2vs4).
For the Kingdom of God is not a matter of what we eat or drink, but of living a life of goodness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. If you serve Christ with this attitude, you will please God, and others will approve of you, too (Rom 14vs17-18).
Never let loyalty and kindness leave you! Tie them around your neck as a reminder. Write them deep within your heart.
Then you will find favor with both God and people, and you will earn a good reputation (Prov 3vs3-4).
