Men's Monday Message: Please God or Man?

Good Morning Men of God,

People pleasers vs. God pleasers.

I often find myself bouncing from one side of the fence to the other. Not sure if you experience the same mindset issues?

I have come to the realization that it is not an either or issue...

it is an issue of motive.

Think about it.... when I have trouble in this arena it is usually because I choose to please man over pleasing God when I should be looking to please man thru pleasing God.

It is true that I will not be able to please everyone all the time nor at any time but if God is pleased what else matters?

Our difficulty lies within the trap of just trying to please man outside of God.

It is then that we feel pulled in different directions, overwhelmed with stress and pressure, even reeling from the effects of the collision between flesh and spirit.

We are commanded in Matthew 22:37-39 to love God with everything we've got.... and love our neighbor as ourselves.

You can't love your neighbor if you don't love God.

I would also say you can't please man if you don't please God.

Let me know what you think about this....

Strength and Honor, but only for His Glory,

MDN Coach Dennis
