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

You are loved. You are loved just as you are and not as you should be, and you have nothing to prove. You can just relax. You can’t be vulnerable with everybody because then you just become a weirdo. But you can be vulnerable with the people you love and with God. That the most important people in your life truly know you. Stop people pleasing: it will totally crush your soul and your life. Don’t do anything to please people; do everything to please God and you will go far in life.

PRAYER: Thank you, God, for allowing us to focus on pleasing you.

REFLECTION: How can you practice pleasing God rather than other people?
