Instead, question it:
“Can a blind man lead a blind man? Will they not both fall into a pit?”
– Luke, 6:39, ESV
But be careful:
‘He that does good works for praise or secular ends, sells an inestimable jewel for a trifle; and that which would purchase heaven for him, he parts with for the breath of the people; which, at best, is but air, and that not often wholesome’
– Jeremy Taylor, c.1650 Holy Living
Because:
“Everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”
– Luke, 14:11, ESV
Therefore:
‘Follow him who, by diligently ploughing his field, sought for eternal fruit: Being reviled we bless, being persecuted we endure, being defamed we entreat, we are made as the offscouring of the world. If you plough after this fashion you will sow spiritual seed. Plough that you may get rid of sin and gain fruit.’
– Ambrose Of Milan, 4th Cent. Concerning Repentance
