Living to please God, not man

Sitting here thinking about how much we wanna impress our bosses at work with working extra hard & showing initiative…. & how we wanna impress our Pastors, “Pastor, I read some Word last night!” And just how much we look for a pat on the back from other people. But what about a pat on the back from God? Lately I’ve been focusing on doing what I feel will make Him proud of me & what will bring Him glory. I have this image in my mind of Him smiling everytime I please Him. Ultimately, this is what life’s all about. We were made for HIS pleasure, not our own.
We have to start developing the mindset NOW to be pleasing to God, not man. When making any type of decisions, ask yourself if God will get glory out of this?
Don’t look for man to validate u; dont look for a pat on the back from man; dont look to be pleasing to man. Man’s opinions will pass away but God’s love & favor are eternal

Matthew 6:14-15

What if God gave us a limit on how many times He would forgive us? He forgives us EVERY time we ask; so what right do we have to put a limit on how many times we’ll forgive someone? We don’t have to earn God’s forgiveness… Its given to us freely when we ask. So how can we require someone to earn back our forgiveness?

Forgiving others is not a request; it is a commandment. Remember we must forgive to be forgiven

For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespassesMatthew 6:14-15

Tomorrow, not promised

We’re all guilty of putting things off… Why? Because we THINK we have that one thing that we are not promised: MORE TIME. “I’m going to wait to stop smoking/drinking; I got plenty of time to get myself together”; “I’m going to stop fornicating after the next couple of times”; “We are gonna shack up a few more years & then get married”; “Oh Imma be ready to answer the calling God has on my life in just a little while…. Let me get these last few things out my system” We’ve ALL said some of these things & probably still saying it now. But I just wanted to tell somebody, myself included, that tomorrow nor the next hour is promised. The time is NOW

How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog—it’s here a little while, then it’s gone. What you ought to say is, “If the Lord wants us to, we will live and do this or that.” Otherwise you are boasting about your own pretentious plans, and all such boasting is evil. Remember, it is sin to know what you ought to do and then not do it. (James 4:14-17 NLT)
