Happy Friday Saints.
Galatians 1:10 “AM I NOW TRYING TO WIN THE APPROVAL OF HUMAN BEINGS, OR OF GOD? OR AM I TRYING TO PLEASE PEOPLE? IF I WERE STILL TRYING TO PLEASE PEOPLE, I WOULD NOT BE A SERVANT OF CHRIST.”
One of the main reasons why we say “YES” to others’ requests when we know that we don’t have the time or energy for them is – we don’t want to disappoint them.
Although many of us would like to; we simply can’t please everyone.
If your plate is already full, something has to be neglected when you say “YES” to more. And very often, it’s the important things that are set aside to make room for the meaningless.
The Bible tells us that we can’t serve two masters. You can’t live to serve God and strive to please people at the same time. If you live to please those around you, you won’t be a servant of Christ.
People pleasers find it hard to say “NO.” If everything on your plate makes you feel overwhelmed or discouraged, and your busyness prevents you from doing the will of God, something is seriously wrong.
If you’ve got too much on your plate right now, you’ll need to say “NO” in order to prioritise the things of God and get the joy back in what you do.
Have an awesome weekend.
God bless and lots’a love,
P.S. Remember, it’s OK to say NO.
