Waste Not Time Pleasing People–CANNOT DO IT ANYWAY.

“Do you think I am trying to make people accept me? No, God is the One I am trying to please. Am I trying to please people? If I still wanted to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.”
‭‭Galatians‬ ‭1:10‬ ‭NCV‬‬

Waste not time pleasing people

CANNOT DO IT ANYWAY!
Strategizing, manipulating,
Only serves to breed distrust
Of fellow human beings
Or sneering disgust
Waste not time pleasing people
To do so divides the mind
Doing this for one
And the opposite for another
While trying to keep the stories
Straight breeds HATE
Waste no time on this slippery slope
Sliding into the muck of twisted
Agendas that so often court enemies
While ignoring friends.
Speak truth, stay strong, when tempted
To project a self that fits
Conversations with any group of people
Or simply keep your mouth shut
No if’s, and’s, and buts
Choose instead respect of all opinions
Without parlaying favor with politic speech
Pull close those whose grace upends
Any need to parlay them as friends
Choose to please God
By loving people, praying for them
God’s will for all, including you.
Waste not the energy needed
To try and please people

BE KIND WITH NOTHING ELSE IN MIND
Be a SIMPLE  servant of Christ
So you can love them.

AND BE GRATEFUL TO HAVE PEOPLE IN YOUR LIFE.
