MAN APPROVED OF GOD

It is quite normal for individuals to desire approval of their efforts. Young people appreciate approval of their parents, teachers, and friends. A husband or wife may long for the approval of the other for his or her efforts. Employees desire the approval of their employers. And the aim of businessmen is to gain general approval of their products or services. Although some individuals freely express appreciation of others, there may often be no expression of approval of good work accomplished or of a contribution made.

Of this lack of uniformity in the voicing of human appreciation, we read in I Peter (2:20), "What glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently? but if, when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently, this is acceptable with God."
