Are you a people pleaser? If you see yourself as a people pleaser, do you ever get fulfillment out of it? Do you feel like a dog chasing it’s tail? Some people you can never please. No matter how hard you try, it is never enough. Does people pleasing bring you peace or constant headache? The only one we should be concerned about pleasing is the Lord. God’s approval brings peace and comfort in our life. Think about the way the planets orbit the sun. It is the same in our life. If God is the center everything else will fall into place. But, if we are constantly striving to please someone, it can bring self-destruction.
“Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15
