God-praise

In today’s Gospel Jesus says, ‘I do not accept human praise’

Reflection on that phrase:

‘He has great tranquility of heart who cares neither for the praises nor the fault-finding of men. He will easily be content and peaceful, whose conscience is pure. You are not holier if you are praised, nor the more worthless if you are found fault with. What you are, that you are; neither by word can you be made greater than what you are in the sight of God.’

― Thomas a Kempis
