I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone. -Bill Cosby
I love that quote because for the majority of my life I have been trying to please everyone and I have FINALLY come to the realization that I can't. No matter how hard I try and how good my intentions are, I cannot please everyone.
Would I like to? Yes of course. Can I? No.
I will obviously try to continue to please people with an understanding it may not be received the way I want it to be, however there is only one person that I want to fully please and that is God.
Ephesians 1:4 says, "For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight."
I will strive to be holy and blameless in His sight.
God will never reject our efforts to please Him. He gave me a gift of eternal life, so I in return I try to please Him with my actions.
