6. Pleasing people
I can't please everyone, all the time. And, there is only One that I should seek to please anyway.
Pleasing God is spoken of in the Bible countless times. It's also been written, blogged and preached about so much as well.
So, I'll just end with my favorites.
Obviously, I'm not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ's servant. Galatians 1:10
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters. Colossians 3:23
