People Pleasing?

Galatians 1:10 NLT
“Obviously, I’m not trying to be a people pleaser! No, I am trying to please God. If I were still trying to please people, I would not be Christ’s servant.”

An obsession with people-pleasing can be a problem no matter what your line of work. As a preaching minister I constantly pray that I will seek God’s approval over that of people.

Sometimes it gets tricky.

God,
Forgive me for the times when I have sought to please people.
You and You alone, O God, are worthy of my desire to please.
Give me the strength to live in order to please You.
In Jesus’ name,
Amen.
