Galatians 1:10 (NIVUK)
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.

In Galatians this verse is part of a defence of Paul’s gospel message and a challenge to the Galatians not to be swayed from it. it does, however, make a challenging verse on its own with which to check our motives behind our own actions. Why are we doing what we’re doing? Is it to gain the applause or acceptance of others? Or is it to please God?

Father, help me today to dedicate as much as possible to you.
