The roar of the crowds
On the one hand, enthusiastic crowds are good thing. We want everyone to be enthusiastic about Christ and about godly ways.
On the other hand, a crowd that sings your praises one moment can easily hurt you the next.
As always, our focus should be on spreading the truth and the love of Christ as effectively as possible.
It is good when people like us and even better if they come to know Christ through us.
But our eyes must always be fixed on our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, so that we follow him, not the crowd.
