Be a God Pleaser

You can’t please God without adding a great deal of joy to your life.

Doing things for others is very rewarding. It’s fun to make others happy, to surprise them in some way with a gift or an offer to do something special for them. The more you like someone, the more you try to please them in some way, usually without being asked. In fact, knowing someone well is the key to pleasing them well.

God enjoys our efforts to please Him. Because He’s God and He already loves us as much as He can, you can’t say that God loves us any more or feels any better about us when we please Him. But He does respond when we do the things that please Him.

Of course, the one who is happiest is the one who does the things that please God. Doesn’t it make sense, then, that we should discover what those things are?

Try to find out what is pleasing to the Lord. Ephesians 5:10
