So much of our thinking is built around the idea that we want other people to think well of us. We want to look good. We want to be right. We want to make a positive impression. Jesus speaks to this mindset here in Matthew 5 and he gives us a radically different way to live. Jesus tells us to live consumed by what others think, not about you, but about God. Live so that others see your life, hear your word, and observe your works and they don’t say anything about you. They give glory to God. The way to follow Jesus is to magnify God, not ourselves.
