Pleasing God or Pleasing Yourself?

Do you seek to please God in everything you do or are you pleasing yourself?

Eph 5:8-11 (ESV) Walk as children of light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord.

  1. I don’t doubt we think we are pleasing God, but are we?

    Does God need that starbucks, or is it us?
    Does God need the burger and fries or us?
    Does God need that monthly contract for the phone, or is it for us?

    In pleasing God, do we look at where the money He has given us goes?

    It’s not wrong to have starbucks, burgers, phones etc. But, in all things, we need to ask, if we do please God.

    Much to think about here.

    God bless.

    Dora,

    As the Word says “Our ways are not God’s ways” We really have no clue what pleases the Lord apart from reading the Bible.
