--32 of 52--

 
 

“And He said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is an abomination in the sight of God.” Luke 16:15


This is a concept that I so often forget: it doesn’t matter what people think about me – it matters what GOD sees. Others can only see the outside of me, but God sees my heart. Outwardly, others see me cheerfully serving; inwardly, God sees the pride of my heart. Outwardly, others may think that I am whole-heartedly following God; inwardly, God sees that I am just acting. It does not matter if men approve of what I do, it matters that God approves.

Oh I love that verse it is such a good reminder that outward appearances aren't what they always seem. And that God always can see the inside. My verse this week is:You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived. Colossians 3:7

And I posted about here:http://scomealive.blogspot.com/2012/08/52-weeks-52-verses-week-32.html

Along with the past two weeks' verses. Sierra
Keep growing beautiful!
