"For it is not the one who commends himself who is approved, but the one whom the Lord commends."
2 Corinthians 10:18 ESV
Our continuous aim in life should be to please God as that was what we were created for.
If this is truly our goal, we should be seeking commendation from no one but our Lord. Similarly, the lack of commendation should not bother us even if others get commended.
Whatever we do, in word or deed, let us do unto the Lord.
Reader, let us ensure today that we are seeking commendation from God alone even if we have to be under appreciated or overlooked.
