Psalms 126-128; 1 Corinthians 10:19-33
RICK NELSON had a hit song called “Garden Party” with the lyric: “You see, you can’t please everyone, so you’ve got to please yourself.”
It’s true that you can’t please everyone. And “pleasing yourself” seems a logical alternative. But there’s another, way better option.
Paul describes it this way:
“Whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”
Paul says “Look – live for yourself and your stuff – and it all dies with you. Live for the Glory of the eternal God – and what you do will last forever.” Life isn’t simply a choice between pleasing others and pleasing yourself. There’s eternal stuff to live for. Living to Please God will take you on adventure that never ends.
Have a fantastic day!
