When To Care

We should please God not man, When to care about what people think
Most of us care more about what people think than what God thinks.

We should care what others think about:

1. The way we treat them (Philippians 2:3-4).

We should try to be the kind of person who is known for our compassion, thoughtfulness, and consideration (Luke 6:31).

2. The way we live out our Christian values (1 Peter 1:17).

We should be known for good deeds and Biblical moral values
(Matthew 5:16).

But we should never care what other people think about:

1. Our looks, social status, income level, race, etc. (1 Samuel 16:7).

God looks at hearts without prejudice. None of these criteria have eternal value (1 John 2:15-17).

2. Our refusal to accept popular philosophies and worldly values (Col. 2:8).

Our culture's values are constantly shifting. It's impossible to please both culture and God (Luke 9:26).

Bottom line: When our goal is pleasing God, we will automatically be in right relationship with men, whether we please them or not.
