Dear Friends and Family of LCC,
I have always somewhat struggled with being a people pleaser. It still creeps into my mind occasionally. Though not as bad now as when I was young.
Many people wrestle with the people pleasing weakness. We like people to like us. We are created to be in relationships with God and each other so it’s natural to be a people pleaser. People say it’s because God is a Spirit. It’s easier to relate to people than to a Spirit. Or is it?
There is a major problem with spending your life seeking the approval of others. When you don’t get it, especially from the important people in your life, it can be devastating.
So … You hear from those who are supposed to know … “Don’t be a people pleaser.” and some even say, “Just please yourself.”
As Christians we know “Just please yourself” is wrong, but what about “Don’t be a people pleaser?” Is that wrong.
Is it wrong to be a people pleaser? That’s my topic for Sunday, and yes I am teaching in Romans.
See you Sunday and bring a people pleaser friend with you.
