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.
