A Daily Devotion for Weds., January 20


Galatians 1:6-10


verse 10: Am I now trying to win the approval of men, or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ.

Pleasing others is a big issue for me. I care about what others think. I care more than I should. Pleasing others can be a result of loving them by being generous and kind to them. But needing to please others can become a reflection of our own needs. God’s approval is what is important. God’s approval is constant, living in me, as long as I accept it. Anticipating that approval should guide my decisions. Decisions made with God’s direction may or may not please others, but will please God.

Holy Lord, when I seek to please others, help me to discern the source of this need. Your approval is what I live for. May my life be a reflection of your love. Amen
