"Let me not, I pray you, accept any man's person, neither let me give flattering titles unto man. For I know not to give flattering titles; in so doing my maker would soon take me away."Read this today and thought of what the Lord Jesus said about the scribes and the Pharasiees, that they...[b][color=660033]...love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues, And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi.

It is very true how so many of our "leaders" do the same thing in the marketplace of the world. We are called to be servants. Are servants noticeable? If even our Lord Jesus was thus, how much should us regular people? We should lift up the name of our God, not ourselves. When the focus is on how good religion can make us look, it has lost all of its meaning and sweetness.
