We all love it when people speak well of us, but we must be careful of flattery. Flattery can cause us to work harder on good causes, but it has also been given to false prophets, murderous dictators, and everyone in between. In the long run, God’s opinion of you, and the things you do matter much more than what people say of you.
Luke 6:26 KJV Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.
