“Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.”
—2 Timothy 3:12
Every day we face three possible motivations about whom we’re going to please: We can seek to please ourselves; we can seek to please other people; or, we can seek to please God.
But we can’t do all three.
If you live to please yourself, you’ll live a miserable life. In fact, the best way to be unhappy is to spend your life in the pursuit of being happy. If you live primarily for yourself, wanting to please yourself, you never will be pleased.
