Is This Pleasing To God?

In every place, in every circumstance, in every undertaking, the Christian should ask, "Is this pleasing to God?"

God is pleased or displeased  with every thought we think,   with every word we speak,   with every action we perform,  with every emotion we feel.

Perhaps we do not sufficiently realize this. We think, speak, feel, and act without ever considering whether we are pleasing God, or not. But this ought not to be, for He   gave us our being,   redeemed us from sin and damnation, 
called us by His grace, and has blessed us with innumerable and interminable blessings, and all that we may glorify Him!

And how can we glorify Him but by habitually aiming to please Him? If we forget or lose sight of this, we forget and lose sight of the principal end of our being, and well-being.

[James Smith]


1 Thessalonians 4:1 ...  Furthermore then we beseech you, brethren, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as ye have received of us how ye ought to walk and to please God, so ye would abound more and more.

Colossians 1:10 ... That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;

1 Corinthians 10:31 ... Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.
Hebrews 13:16 ... But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.❤
