The Disease to Please!

“…am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ…” © Gal 1:10, NIV italics and emphasis mine

Dr Harriet Braiker (2001) wrote the New York best seller titled ‘The Disease to Please’ in which she shows how and why people with disease to please are manipulated (used) and abused…Little do we realize the ‘price’ we pay to stay on the ‘good side’ of everybody, not wanting to ‘upset’ anyone.

Paul, in the above scripture, says if he were to please people he would not be a servant of God. If one is ridden with the disease to please, one is never free to be and do what God created one to be. This doesn‘t mean you are reckless with people, but it means God’s approval takes priority over and above all..
