The Lord and serving Him should be our motivation for everything we do, not other people. Other people will always fail you, the Lord will not.
We all need to be reminded that we are to do all we do as unto the Lord.
1 Corinthians 10:31 So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. ESV
Colossians 3:17 And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. ESV
23 Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men,
24 knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ. ESV
