The only opinion that matters

Your approval or disapproval means nothing to me because I know you don’t have God’s love within you. Jn. 5;41-42

The need for approval can be crippling. Jesus did what He came to do and said what He came to say. Jesus was focused on loving not on winning love. He dismissed the posturing objections of the Pharisees and the more well-meaning concerns of his family and friends because He was confident of His mission and plugged in to His Father. And His is the only opinion that matters.

Lord, help me to live like I don’t care about approval until I really don’t.
