Luke 6

Luke 6:26 “Woe unto you when all men shall speak well of you.”

Jesus is clearly warning us about being pleasers of men. How easy it is to get caught up in what others think of you, and trying to do everything you can so that “all men shall speak well of you”; instead of seeking to please the one who created us, and has given us the very breath in our lungs.

Luke 6:46 “And why call me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?”

God really does want us to obey what he has commanded us, even though it might not be glamorus, or easy, and we fail along the way we still need to love God with all of our hearts, and all of our souls, and all of our minds.


Father please forgive me for wanting the approval of other men more then seeking to please you… Lord God I ask that you would give me a love for you, that I would truly love the Lord MY God with all my hear, soul and mind… Father give to me a desire to know and serve you unreservedly… Jesus thank you for willingly shedding your blood on the cross and dying to give me life….
