Pleasing God First

So then, my friends, because of God’s great mercy to us I appeal to you: Offer yourselves as a living sacrifice to God, dedicated to his service and pleasing to him. This is the true worship that you should offer. (Romans 12:1)


If you live to please people, you live to displease God but if you live to love all men, you live to honour God. Remember, loving men includes reprimanding them when they go wrong. The Lord chastises those He loves. Alas!
