Never do things for man. Let me say it again. Never do things for man’s approval. Only seek for God’s approval. Man will disappoint you. So, I sing. Surprise surprise. And I am smart enough to know that my singing, the way I sing, my inflection, my tone, my range…may not be for everybody. That’s just life and reality and trust me it’s good. Now what I do I believe and know is that there are some people who do like it. There are some people who view my voice and ministry as effective in their lives. And you let me know that and I’m so grateful for that because I am living out the will of God for my life. I know that emphatically. But the reason I am doing God’s will is because my intent is to please Him, not people. I work for Him. I live for Him. I pray to Him. I sing for Him. And what he does is he takes that offering and makes it palpable to you so that it draws you to Him. So how does that apply to you? The same way I sing, God has gifted your hands to do something – preach, teach, cook, clean, sing, mow lawns, run a company, start a company, write, arrange, produce, draw, work the production sound board like TK here at the Sound of Praise…AND the Bible says whatever you do, do it from your heart for the Lord and not for man. That’s when the blessing comes.
Colossians 3:23-24 (KJV) – And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.
