I don’t live by people’s compliments, because if I lived by their compliments I would die by their criticism.”
Whose words are you living by (on)? Man’s OPINION of you will change, but God’s remains the same. Yeshua Jesus Said in Matthew 4:4 “…It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.'” To live off of the Words of God is to live and rest in the truth that you are greatly loved, fearfully and wonderfully made, that you are delighted in. live off of life.
