Proverbs 21:3 Clean living before God and justice with our neighbors mean far more to God than religious performance. 


How many times do we try to do a lot of good works? We, as people, love to do a lot of things. Why?
Sometimes, when we do things, people notice.
Day by day, people run around doing things, hoping to be seen and noticed by everyone.
Some people do good things like praying in the church and helping the poor.
But, why do we prefer to pray in a public place with our hands high in the air? Everyone can see our outward appearance. Only God can see what's going on inside of us.
Sometimes we hide behind our tasks in order to hide our true feelings, whether they are bad thoughts or bad things that hurt our character.
All the work that we do can be done so everyone can see us. So they can congratulate us. This is good and it makes us feel good but it doesn't glorify God.
How many value your work? Answer indeed… how much for the man? How much to Jesus?
How is you day going?
How are you doing?
How are you doing mentally?
How many people value your work?
ops your day

Calling the crowd to join his disciples, he said, "Anyone who intends to come with me has to let me lead. You're not in the driver's seat; I am. Don't run from suffering; embrace it. Follow me and I'll show you how. Self-help is no help at all. Self-sacrifice is the way, my way, to saving yourself, your true self. What good would it do to get everything you want and lose you, the real you? What could you ever trade your? Mark 8:36,37 What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul?Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?
If you and me run to the works whose will be seen for the people, maybe will can losing our soul! ”What good would it do to get everything you want and lose you, the real you? “
We need be seen for God, not for people! We need take care about God’s will no people’s will!

I truly love the part in your post about embracing suffering. I was diagnosed with a crippling autoimmune disease several years ago. Very painful. Lots of suffering. God used that to draw me closer to Him than ever before.

Keep up the good work on your blog.
