Quit Trying to Please Everybody


When we worry about what other people think, we let them control us. We waste a lot of time and energy trying to figure out what other people want us to be. Then, we waste a lot of time and energy trying to become like that rather than just being what God made us to be. You're manipulated and controlled by somebody else. Worrying about what other people think is dangerous because we're more likely to cave in to criticism. It means we don't always do the right thing; instead, we do the thing that everybody wants us to do. And we're in danger of missing God's best because we're so worried about what other people want us to do that we can't stop to think about what God wants us to do. Fact #1: You cannot please everybody. Fact #2: It's not necessary to please everybody. Fact #3: Rejection will not ruin your life. Quit trying to please everybody! Remember that nobody can make you feel inferior unless you give them permission. The Apostle Paul says, "If God is for us, who can be against us?" (Romans 8:31 TEV) This means we can think like this: "God likes me, If God likes me, who cares that anybody doesn't approve of everything I do.' Remember, nothing you ever do will make God love you less. Nothing you ever do will make God love you more. He loves you completely right now.


“The fear of man lays a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is safe.”

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭29:25‬ ‭ESV‬‬
