Fear of Man

Fear of man is such a part of our human fabric that we should check for a pulse if someone denies it. (pg. 17)

Regarding other people, our problem is that we need them (for ourselves) more than we love them (for the glory of God). The task God sets for us is to need them less and love them more. (pg. 19)

-Edward Welch, When People are BIG and God is Small

A looooong time ago, when I blogged more and read more, I posted thoughts on another book on the topic of pleasing people/fear of man. They are still floating around the Internet here and here.
