Just an honest poll here and hope everyone is truthful in the responses. If gods opinion of you is not the most important then i encourage you to make it that way. We are to be in the world and not of the world right?

I voted for the gods, because Thor and Athena always give me reliable advice. :)

lol i knew i should have paid more attention to my punctuation! Yes i meant god, as in our father in heaven.
I posted this because i was asked this in church this last sunday by the pastor and when i really looked at myself, i realized that god's opinion wasn't the only one which i held close to. I am in transition now and working to change that so that all i can focus on pleasing is god and not worrying about the other people. I don't want to lift up anyone to the same level as god and sure don't want to put anyone above god.

The Law requires us to love God first and love all others after that. God's opinion is the only one that matters.

I always have some anxiety about how others see me. But the only one that matters to tears for me is God Our Father's, Jesus's and His Holy Spirit.
God bless, pickles

Everyone's opinion matters to me to an extent. For example, if someone thought I was a mean person, even if I hardly knew them, I would want to know so I could apologize and adjust my attitude.

This is one of the reasons why I am so afraid, and one of the reasons why I have so much panic and fear. I think that I love my husband more then I love anyone, and I care about his opinion more than I do Gods. Isnt that the most horrible thing you have ever heard? I have prayed and prayed and prayed for God to help me love him more then anyone.

I am scared that God is punishing me for this. Any thoughts on what to do?

'Fear Not, Fret Not, Worry Not'

2 Tim 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

No it isn't the most horrible thing I have ever heard. You have been honest, it shows actually that you do have a sincere heart for God. It is easy for us all to come and comment that God matters most in our lives, and he should, and I am sure to some He does. I have struggled withv this too. I have been convicted lately that I must care more about God than anything.
I honestly believe it is only God that can bring us to this point. We are called to love Him with all our body, soul, heart and mind. I know I have failed miserably. But God looks at the heart, and He still loves me, and you I am sure.
I do not believe God is punishing you for this. But He may allow circumstances into your life so that you come closer to him. Thank you for your honesty, I appreciate it, and I am sure God does too

God Bless
