God’s Opinion Matters Most

For years after preaching, I always felt vulnerable. When I greet people after a sermon in the lobby, if no one says, “Good sermon, Pastor,” I think I must have bombed.

When I would walk in the door after church and see Amy, I was always hungry for her approval. Did you like it? Did I do a good job?

Although it will always be somewhat important to know if you are connecting with people, I am growing to care less about their opinions.

I am no longer spending as much time asking, “What will bring people to church?” Instead I’m asking, “What will bring glory to God?”

I won’t lie and say that people’s opinions don’t matter to me at all anymore. But I can tell you truthfully, that more than ever, God’s opinion matters most.
