Description

Excerpt from At Close Quarters It is very simple. Notice that our Lord is not dealing with the giving of praise or honour; He is dealing with the receiving of it. He is simply putting us on guard against a wrong and sinful use to which we may put that praise and approval of friends, which used properly may be such a blessing to us, and such an assistance to our own best life. The danger which He discovers to us in this matter is one which we can see very clearly once our minds are directed to it. What is it? It is the danger of receiving honour one of another; the danger of taking it in. The danger of making it the final standard of our private life, and later on of being satisfied with it. In fact, the danger here is the danger everywhere - it is the danger of stopping, the danger of cutting ourselves off from God. It is not only in the region of our moral life that it is disastrous to be satisfied with the approval of men: in every other region of spiritual life, the same peril besets men.
