Acceptable and Approved.

“For he who serves God in these things is acceptable to men and approved by God.” (Romans 14:18)

Doing things God’s way doesn’t necessarily put us at odds with those around us. Sometimes we assume that we will be less successful if we act in obedience to Scripture. True sometimes but certainly not always.

I would take having favour with God over favour with man, but God says you can achieve both. Just make sure you get your priorities right. One is the cause; the other the effect. When we get our priorities right and allow God to take care of the consequences, He will work out all things for our good.

His Scripture tells us that we can be acceptable to men and approved by God. What a powerful way to be effective in the marketplace!

Quick Prayer. “Help me to be approved by you.” Amen
