Self-reflection. Do we ask ourselves questions and challenge ourselves? Read Galatians 1:10.
For am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I striving to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a bond-servant of Christ.
Galatians 1:10 NASB
These questions should be something that we are asking ourselves on a regular basis. What is our motive? Who are we trying to please?
When we look at our lives and the actions we take and the priorities we set, how do we answer that? Is pleasing God our top priority? Or do we try to please the world? How would we answer that today?
