Do we spend most of our time thinking up lies so we can please people, or just doing what we think they want, just to make them happy? And when we do this is it to the "keep peace"? Let me ask you, In all of your efforts did you really make them "happy" for very long? More importantly, did you have JOY in your own actions? Haven't we realized yet, that appeasing others is "time consuming", it drains our Spiritual Energy (because we don't serve GOD first), and it removes our Freedom (Freedom in the LORD). John 12:43, "for they loved the glory of pleasing man more than the glory of pleasing GOD". MISERY by our trying to be GOD, OR PEACE, LETTING GOD BE GOD, WHICH DO YOU CHOOSE?
