Seek To Please God, Not Ourselves

We live in a narcissistic society where our goal is to please ourselves and make ourselves feel good. The Bible reminds us we should have a different goal. For example, Exodus 29 tells us the burnt offering sacrificed at Aaron’s ordination was a soothing aroma pleasing to Yahweh. Ephesians 5 teaches us Christ’s sacrificial death was a fragrant aroma pleasing to God. And in Philippians 4 we learn the financial gift given to Paul by the Philippians was a sacrifice pleasing to God. In all three examples we see the goal was to please God, not man. Thus, these verses remind us we should seek to please God, not ourselves. Learn more in the following video:
