Concerned About What Others Think?

I think I’ve messed up a personal principle, which prompts today’s word-of-the-week…


Perhaps this is just for me, but I have a sense it might touch a few of you as well.

I’ve been overly concerned lately with what others think.

I value feedback and the counsel of friends. I’d never want to be the guy who doesn’t care about other people. But there’s a point at which that concern tips into worry, and I think I rolled over that line.

“What will people think?” just isn’t a helpful question—unless you want to live in fear.

Better questions:

  • Is this what I believe?
  • Will this be helpful?
  • Can someone learn from this?
  • Will this bring me closer to Jesus?

I’m sure you can think of more questions. What are your thoughts?

Let’s do what matters this week, and stop worrying about what others might think.
