John 12:42-43; "Many people did believe in him, however, including some of the Jewish leaders. But they wouldn't admit it for fear that the Pharisees would expel them from the synagogue. For they loved human praise more than the praise of God."(NLT)
Some people love human praises more than the praise that comes from God. In the past they have spent time, energy and money trying to gain praises from people around them, what did they get in return? Pretense, deceit, falsehood, hypocrisy, backstabbing, e.t.c. As long as you are not seeking the praise from God, your efforts will only lead to vanity.
But we are not like that; we are not like those who seek the praises of men, our praise comes from God. John 5:44 says; "No wonder you can't believe! For you gladly honor each other, but you don't care about the honor that comes from the one who alone is God."
Do not seek the praises of men, it only leads to vanity, praises that come from men may cause you to stumble, but the praise that comes from God leads to fulfillment and a great honor. 
Dear Lord, I thank you. I desire the praise that comes from you rather than the praises that come from men. I pray that my efforts to please you will lead me to your promises and great honor in Jesus name! Amen!
