Live not on likes
It is good to like what is good
But don’t like just to please
Mean what you like with a reason
And do not live your life on likes
Be no led by likes
But be led by the Holy Spirit
Be not put off if no one likes
Do what you know pleases God
Because you’re called to please God- not man.
It’s natural to like being liked
29 And He who sent Me is with Me. The Father has not left Me alone, for I always do those things that please Him. John8:29
11 Then a voice came from heaven, “You are My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”
17 And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.
22 Bondservants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh, not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but in sincerity of heart, fearing God.23 And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men,24 knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ.
5Bondservants, be obedient to those who are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in sincerity of heart, as to Christ;6 not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but as bondservants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart,7 with goodwill doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men,8 knowing that whatever good anyone does, he will receive the same from the Lord, whether he is a slave or free.
Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’ Matt4:4
14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. Ro6:14
