man-pleaser or God-pleaser?

This morning during my prayer time, I felt God leading me to this passage which has challenged and encouraged me often. Paul writes:

"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."
- Galatians 1:10 ESV

Father, Let me have a confidence that does not come from pleasing men, but that comes from serving a mighty, sovereign God.

Thanks for the post. It all goes back to that, doesn't it. In our blogs, our language, our churches...are we going to be man or God pleasers? There begins the problem with churches that cater to the will of the "masses," so to say, and not to God's word.

Thanks for the reminder!
