Find Freedom Through Seeking to Please Him Above All Else

Matthew 6:1 - "Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for the. You will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven."

Matthew 23:5-7- "They do all their deeds to be seen by others. For they make their phylacteries (amulets) broad and their fringes long, and they love the place of honor at feasts and the best seats in the synagogues and greetings in the marketplaces and being called rabbi by others" 

Ephesians 5:7-10 - Therefore do not associate with them; for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord. 

Dear God, never do I want to seen as inauthentic even if it means that others end up despising me. Help me to be more worried about pleasing You than about pleasing others or even myself. Thank You. In Jesus' Name, Amen!
