Math.7:13 “Don’t look for shortcuts to God. The market is flooded with surefire, easygoing formulas for a successful life that can be practiced in your spare time. Don’t fall for that stuff, even though crowds of people do. 14 The way to life — to God! — is vigorous and requires total attention.

15 “Be wary of false preachers who smile a lot, dripping with practiced sincerity. Chances are they are out to rip you off some way or other. Don’t be impressed with charisma; look for character.”(msg)

Following the Lord requires total attention to his word and will. It may be costly, making you lose friends and so on, and sometimes not even being popular. But there is a reward from Him at the end. Stay on course, don’t be a copy cat because men are famous. Your reward is only in that which he asked you to do.Be sure you are in it for Him.

Just a thought!
