It’s not about them

Some people, maybe most people, won’t understand what it is you’re up to.

Are you really trying to tell me that your work is worship?
Are you really trying to tell me that going out drinking with those people is obedient?
Are you really trying to tell me that working 80 hours a week is faithful?
Are you really trying to tell me that eating that is alright?
Are you really trying to tell me that going there is ok?

Ignore ‘em.

Faithfulness isn’t about them. Their perceptions, reactions and comments are immaterial. You have to impress just one person (and that guy, as it turns out, is already impressed with you.)
