SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 07/23/15- “Seek And Desire The Approval Of Papa God, Not Man’s!” (Matthew 6:1)
Premise Question: Is the approval, admiration, applause and adulation of man worth the risk of loosing the recognition, ratification, rewards and recompense of The Sovereign LORD God Almighty, our Papa God?
““Watch out! Don’t do your good deeds publicly, to be admired by others, for you will lose the reward from your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 6:1 NLT)
We should be ever mindful, taking extreme caution and care, to not make it our habit or custom of openly putting on display, before others, our righteous practice of doing good deeds, our generosity and acts of kindness, shown on every occasion, with the expressed intent, desire and purpose of being recognized, seen and acknowledged by others for them. If we so choose to practice our righteous conduct before others, in this manner, then we will not receive our just reward and recompense; that of being recognized and acknowledged by The Sovereign LORD God Almighty, our Creator and Papa God, who lives and rules from His Heavenly abode. It should be our greatest desire, in this life, to always honor and please only Him, in everything we do and say. (Matthew 6:1 PDCP)
Bottom Line: NOPE! The approval, admiration, applause and adulation of man cannot and will not ever begin to compare to the recognition, ratification, rewards and recompense of The Sovereign LORD God Almighty, our Papa God!!! For man’s expressions of praise and approval is temporary and fickle at best; while being commended, recognized and rewarded by Papa God is intrinsic, ever faithful and true, as it is everlasting and eternal. Case in point: “For since the world began, no ear has heard and no eye has seen a God like you, who works for those who wait for him!” (Isaiah 64:4 NLT) And: (“That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.”
(1 Corinthians 2:9 NLT) May we never succumb, for any rhyme or reason, to the temptation and scenario that Esau, the twin brother of Jacob, where he exchanged his inheritance and eternal rewards of great blessings for the satisfaction of a temporary need and condition! Don’t ever choose to exchange the intrinsic for the temporal, for one lasts forever and the other soon fades away into nothingness! Therefore, always choose to seek and desire the approval and recognition of Papa God, not man’s! Blessings…
