It is only human nature that we search for favor in our fellow man. However, it is not something we should allow to rule our lives. When making friends with someone, we are sizing up their words and thoughts, even if we are unaware of what we are doing. But, as believers, we need to seek the favor of Christ, first, then all other favor falls into place. If you are walking in His ways and working hard to stay in His paths, He will lead you to favor with those whom He has chosen. And, guess what? You'll find that you receive the favor of many, even those who are up to "no-good." But, you must ask for discernment and stay close to Him, for the wolves have falsely bright and pleasing words, also. Having the favor of influential, but dead-hearted people is NOT what we need as believers. Their favor is dead and shallow and nothing like the favor of our Living God. So, saints, as you go about your daily routines, giving your best at whatever you do, bask in His favor and lend your blessing to others. Many blessings!
