love of human praise

"The love of human praise—human glory—is universal and deadly. Jesus said, 'How can you believe, when you receive glory from one another and do not seek the glory that comes from the only God?' (John 5:44). You can’t. You can’t believe in the crucified Messiah as your supreme treasure and hero, and then love the exact opposite of the mind-set that took him to the cross."  

(John Piper)
