Commentary: Matthew 11:16-19
“For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they said, ‘He is possessed by a demon.’ The Son of Man came eating and drinking and they said, ‘Look, he is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.’ But wisdom is vindicated by her works.”
Jesus, you had no concern for what people would say about you because you knew you were doing the will of the Father. I want to teach my children that the only person who they need to please is You. Nothing else matters. Help me to lead by example by not looking for validation and approval on social media and other superficial means. Not only will I be distracted from what really matters, but a part of my heart that should belong to you will be lost in cyberspace.
