We are free to “not please ourselves” because we know God will take care of us. People who strive to accommodate their own interests, do so out of a deficit, a fear. As children of a loving and good heavenly Father, we can live from abundance not lack. I will talk more about this tomorrow, I hope.

pleasing ourselves

Romans 15:1 “we ought not to please ourselves.” In so many ways we strive to accomodate our own opinions, desires and interests, rearranging our lives and relationships to make sure we come out on top. And as promised, lots of tongue-tied-ness in this video. I wish I hadn’t committed to not editing the minute. (hehe).
