Galatians 1:10 English Standard Version (ESV)
10 For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant[a] of Christ.
Morning Men of God,
It is hard to maintain relationships. We want our wife to be happy with us, our kids, our friends, our coworkers. In a perfect world everyone that we interact with on a daily basis would be pleased with everything we do or say. In reality we are unable to cover every base. We let some people down. We come up short in various occasions. As men with the desire to complete tasks and succeed in everything; that can be disheartening. There is only one relationship that we should be supremely concerned with. Only one "person" we need to please. That is God. The Creator of All! He that came in the form of his Son Jesus Christ to die for our sins. We NEED him to be pleased with us. Whether or not we please him has eternal implications for ourselves and those around us. As we put God first, and seek HIM as priority, He will guide us in maintaining and developing external relationships. Don't over think it! The first step to pleasing God is spending more time with him. Find time today to pray more, read more, or serve more. In doing that, God is Pleased!
Love you Guys
