What does it mean to ‘please God’? Does it mean to be giving? Patient? Kind?
Pleasing God is not just about giving, because many people give with expectations of something in return. This does not please God.
Pleasing God is not just about Patience. Many murderers are patient as they plot and wait for the opportunity to kill their victim.
Pleasing God is not just about being kind. Many people act kind even when being passive-aggressive and with their attempts to “kill you with kindness”.
What pleases God? It seems to me the key to pleasing God lies not within what you do or how you act… but lies within your heart. It is within the heart where the pure loving motivation within us resides. It is Love that is pleasing to God.
