It’s so easy to get caught up in trying to please everyone. We all know it’s impossible but we try to do it anyway. I learned many years ago to please an audience of one…God.
This is going to surprise you but you will make someone mad and they will talk about you.
I know this will shock you but not everyone will like you!
If you are in any type of leadership role, than I can guarantee you that people will not always understand you.
Your job and my job is to make a difference, to influence lives and to lead.
1. Your ultimate goal is to please God.
When you know that you are walking with the Lord and your life is pleasing to Him, that is all that matters!
2. You will NEVER be able to please everyone!
No matter how hard you try, and no matter how you try to accommodate people and be there for them, you will always let someone down.
3. Is this taking away from your family?
Do your “people pleasing” duties take away from the most important people in your life?
4. I am okay with who I am.
You have to be okay with YOU. At the end of the day, know that you did your best. Know that you lived with integrity and you sought to please God. Go to bed that evening being okay with that knowledge.
Work to please God…that will keep you busy!
