To be a pleaser

Over the past two days I have come face to face once again with my own wickedness manifested in the lust to please people. Not for the sake of pleasing God. The people pleaser seeks to please in order to receive love. It is a terminal carnality that eats away the divine call to Christlikeness.

Lord, I confess this nature which is indeed a self-inflicted thorn. Trying to build up my own personal kingdom of love through the system of IOU.
