Does it make a difference what others think about me?

It is dangerous to be concerned with what others think of you, but if you trust the LORD, you are safe. (Proverbs 29:25 GNB)

When I go for a job interview, I will pick my clothes carefully.  I will make sure my resume is updated and contains all the keywords for the type of job I am seeking.  During the interview, I try to put my best foot forward so that I appear like the person they are looking for.  I care about what they think about me.  There is nothing wrong with this scenario.  But today’s verse made me think about how I dress and act around people.  Am I trying to impress them how great I am, or should I be more focused on how they see Christ through me?  Proverbs 29:25 tells me that I do not have to worry about what others think of me.  If I keep my eyes on Jesus and trust Him, I do not have to worry about anything else.
