People-pleasers seek to gain approval from others by never saying "no." God desires that we seek His pleasure first, and then He will help us maintain healthy relationships.

Ps. 1:1-3; Prov. 29:25; Mic. 7:5-7; Matt. 6:31-33; Matt. 10:34-39; John 14:15-21.
Are you a people-pleaser? How are you allowing other people to influence your daily activities?
Father, please help me always keep You first. Forgive me for putting others' opinions above Yours. Amen.
