Scripture: John 5:44 How can you believe if you accept praise from one another yet make no effort to obtain the praise that comes from the only God?
Observation: I do try continually to get the praises of others. I want to be liked, and thought of highly by others. I can’t count the times I did that and compromised what God wanted of me.
Application: Everything I do and say should honor God in some way. I’m a child of the Father and I should act like it trying to get praise from Dad for doing His will. I need to come up with ways that are praiseworthy and plan out how to do them.
Prayer: Dear Father you are worthy of all my praise, obedience and worship. May I honor you this day in some way that will please you and be worthy of your praise.
