Stay away from people pleasing

people pleasing

As for what was sown among thorns, this is the one who hears the word, but the cares of the world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and it proves unfruitful. (Matthew 13:22)

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. (Galations 1:10)

but just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, so we speak, not to please man, but to please God who tests our hearts.(1 Thessalonians 2:4)

“People pleasing” is not a yoke which comes from God. The Lord’s yoke instead is light. Know the difference and don’t carry the yoke of men or women when you are never called to do that by God.
