We were recently helping out at church and my daughter was playing hide and seek with other kids there. They had fun hiding and seeking. Once we become adults, we may no longer play the hide and seek game, but we may go seeking for the approval of others!
When we set out to complete work in the world, we need to be aware of whose approval we are seeking. No matter how good our deeds may be, if we are working just to please people, we are not truly serving God. Whatever we are doing, whether work, volunteering, running errands, or even doing chores, we should seek to please God and gain His approval. We shouldn't worry about playing "hide and seek" with people's approval, we should just seek to please and serve God!
Always seek to please and serve God!
Thank You for Your guidance in my life. Help me to always serve You and seek Your approval. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
