Prayer Journal: Day 95

Day 95

We were not looking for praise from men, not from you or anyone else. As apostles of Christ we could have been a burden to you, but we were gentle among you, like a mother caring for her little children. We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well, because you had become so dear to us. – 1 Thessalonians 2: 6-8

People pleasing isn’t something God asks us to do. The only one we need to please is our Lord. Sometimes we worry too much about what others think of us. Are they happy with us? Are they pleased with our work?

It is human nature to want to be appreciated, but God turns our focus elsewhere – towards Heaven. He can redirect our attention. Of course, He wants us to care about each other. He wants us to love one another as much as we love our own children. We have a beautiful gospel to share. Amen.
