Just to see if he is pleased. All others have less priority. Did the visitors enjoy the worship service? First, we need to ask if God is pleased with our worship. Did the young people enjoy it? First, did our Master enjoy?
But what about the prominent people? They certainly are important. They hold positions, serve on the board, and tithe consistently. But first, is Jesus pleased? Others are important, but Jesus.
Maybe the questions we ask need to be re-worked. Re-examine our priorities. Check the leanings of our hearts. Then always glance at the Master’s face. Make sure he is pleased.
