The Tyranny of Living for the Approval of Others

August 27, 2017

From the series, "Gospel of Matthew." So many of us live under the suffocating weight of the approval (or disapproval) of other people.

Jesus tackles this head on, calling his apprentices to a life of self-forgetful service of the needy, simply for the reward of our Father’s pleasure.
