proverbs 29.25 (gnb), it is dangerous to be concerned with what others think of you.
why? why is it dangerous to worry about what other people think of you?
when you're worried about what other people think, you’re letting them control you. they’re manipulating you.
we waste a lot of time and energy trying to figure out what other people want us to be and then trying to become like it, rather than just being what GOD made us to be. you’re manipulated and controlled by somebody else.
it’s dangerous because, when you’re worried about what other people think all the time, you don’t always do the right thing. you do the thing that everybody wants you to do. you cave in to criticism. you’re devastated by it.
and you probably miss GOD’s best for your life because you’re so worried about what do other people want you to do, that you can’t stop and think about what does GOD want you to do.
just a thought from the front porch…
