We can spot the fear of man everywhere. (Edward T. Welch, author)
Further: “The fear of man goes by other names. When we are in our teens, it is called peer pressure. When we are older, it is called people-pleasing. Recently, it has been called codependency.” Regardless of the labels, this concern has had a pervasive effect on modern living. Being a “people-pleaser” is an endless and fruitless behavior.
Our purpose is to please God, not people. He alone examines the motives of our hearts. (1 Thessalonians 2:4)
