Galatians 1:10 Am I now trying to win the approval of men, or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ.


In our lives, the approval of others, our parents, friends, co-workers, etc., influence our actions. Too many times, this search for approval leads to a poor self-image. No matter how hard we may try, the other person may never give us the approval we are looking for. The Apostle Paul restates here in Galatians that we only need to please one master and that is Christ.
