Our Need To Please Others

533461488_1e0f72725d_mSo often we easily fall into the trap of doing things to please others.  This is not always a bad thing.  We may want to please our parents, because this is obedient to God’s commandment.  We may seek the approval of our spouse or friends, because we love them and want to make them happy.  However, there are times when we can become carried away with pleasing others and making them happy, we forget about our need to please the Lord.  I was reading today in John ch12v43 “For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God”.  I am taking this verse out of context slightly, but the meaning remains the same.  It is wrong for us to put our desire to please others, before our desire to please God.  If there was ever a good time for us to be reminded of this, it’s Christmas!  Just thought I’d Share it with you! Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year!
