My sweet daughter is a people pleaser. She comes by honestly because that is also how I am. I dislike conflict. I do not like people being upset with me. My daughter and I both will put our own desires to the side to please everyone else.
It is nice to make other people happy. There is nothing wrong with considering the feelings of other people. Actually it is important.
By why are we people pleasers? Is it because we fear being judged? We do not want someone to dislike us? We seek approval?
"Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ." Galatians 1:10
We should not be people pleasers just to win man's approval. We should only strive to please our Lord. Galatians tells us we can not be a servant of God if we are trying to please others. I desire God approval far more than I do man's approval.
Are you a people pleaser or a God pleaser?
