"So Jesus said, "When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am He, and I do nothing on My own initiative, but I speak these things as the Father taught Me. And He who sent Me is with Me; He has not left Me alone, for I always do the things that are pleasing to Him."
Now that is something to try to follow!
Are we more concerned with pleasing ourselves or pleasing God? I hope that the answer is pleasing God. That is my goal - I certainly don't always follow it perfectly but I am trying to remember to just jump back up again when I fall and try again. I am very thankful for the Holy Spirit that I have living inside me to help me with this goal!
Let's strive to please God!
