It’s funny how sometimes we are so preoccupied of what people think of us, that’s why it is a dangerous trap to fear people because this will lead to pleasing them of doing what they want rather than doing what Our Heavenly Father wants.
Do not be disheartened not to please people around you, because sooner or later, if you live by pleasing those around you, you will grow tired and weary.
Let’s be brave enough to learn how to say no. If they are really a true friend of yours, they will understand. 🌸 It’s liberating for our souls once we learn how to say a polite no.
For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.
Galatians 1:10 ESV
