Praise of Men

The praise of men can be a dangerous trap. When others are singing your praises, it’s easy to soak up the praise and start believing your own press.

But as followers of Jesus, we are called to give God the glory, because our talents and resources came from Him.

In Acts 12, King Herod was addressing a crowd when they began praising him, claiming that his was the voice of a god. Herod loved the adoration, but it cost him his life.

Acts 12:23 says, “And immediately an angel of the Lord struck him because he did not give God the glory.”

Hopefully God will not strike you dead if you forget to give God the glory for your business success, but why risk it. Instead, give God the praise!
