“Now does that sound as if I were trying to win human approval? No! I want God’s approval! Or that I’m trying to cater to people? If I were still doing that, I would not be a servant of the Messiah.”
Galatians 1:10 CJB
Paul is making the point that we should be more concerned with pleasing the LORD and not trying to be liked or have the world’s approval!
“In the same way, let your light shine before people, so that they may see the good things you do and praise your Father in heaven.”
Matthew 5:16 CJB
One of the biggest problems with believers today is we are afraid to offend people, because we want to be liked or fit in with the world! We all should be careful of doing that!
“May my musings be pleasing to Him; I will rejoice in Adonai.”
Psalm 104:34 CJB
The word musing here refers to either thoughts, speech, babbling and even prayers. We should try to please the LORD with everything we say and do! We all need to look for ways to be more pleasing to the LORD!
May your day be richly blessed with ways to please the LORD
