On the road to humility

A cluster of small green tomatoes

Whatever our position in life, if our lives and works are to be of the kingdom of God, we must not have human approval as a primary or even major aim.  We must lovingly allow people to think whatever they will.  We may, if it seems right, occasionally try to help them understand us and appreciate what we are doing.  That could be an act of love.  But in any case we can only serve them by serving the Lord only.
