Why do you do what you do? Do you do it to please someone? Or do you do it because this is what you want to do? This is something that you enjoy doing. I have come to realize that most people usually do what they do to please someone. Whether it’s their parents, their teacher, their boss, their spouse. Whomever it is, it’s not about you, but the other person. But it’s not always good to do such. Firstly, we ought to please God first in all that we do. Because He sees all and knows all. So why try to please people?
You see, whilst people see what you do, God sees why you do. So if people can only see skin deep and God can see the heart, then I believe that your intentions are worth more than your actions. I know there is a saying ‘ action speaks louder than words’ but what good is your action if your intentions are bad? It’s as good as deceit.
So the next time you think of pleasing someone, ask yourself, why. Yes you want to respect and honor the person, but your why, would really determine if you would be blessed for it or not. And for me, the why is more important.
