Today's fortune cookie

As opposed to Scripture, which plainly says, "There are ways that seem right to people, but in the end those ways lead to death."

Don't please yourself. While it's nice to be satisfied with who God made you to be, it's not the same as pleasing yourself by making decisions solely to benefit you.

It is quite true that it is impossible to please everyone. Please one instead... if God is pleased with you, you haven't got any reason to seek approval anywhere else.
