If We Wish to Please Men

"You and I cannot be useful if we want to be sweet as honey in the mouths of men.

God will never bless us if we wish to please men, that they may think well of us.

Are you willing to tell them what will break your own heart in the telling...

and break theirs in the hearing?

If not, you are not fit to serve the Lord.

You must be willing to go and speak for God, though you will be rejected."

~ Charles Spurgeon 1834-1892, aka Prince of Preachers


For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God?

 Or am I trying to please man? 

If I were still trying to please man,

 I would not be a servant of Christ.  

~Galatians 1:10
