Pleasing People

These past few days has been a lot of pressure coming from different people — prof, friends, colleagues, co-workers. All of them have been buzzing out my mind and I really do not know what to do.

Example, yesternight, I was late for our meeting. I cannot think of any excuse except a corroded memory. I was at the Main Library trying to absorb my ie21 lecture notes, when I remembered my classmate, which I related to our dorm. If it hadn’t been for my classmate, I won’t go to the meeting.

I simply forgot. My bad.

But for the things that I do, I think I just missed out something really important: to please Him. Because of the pressure from the people around me, I leaned toward satisfying them. They have their expectations. I know God has His own — should be priority.

For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ.
GALATIANS 1:10

That’s it. I, siguro, have the wrong push.

I thought of quitting one of my duties. I just can’t afford to be what they want me to be, to suit their expectations. But before getting into that duty, I remember myself promising to serve the people.

No, I am not yet quitting.

If I quit now, I surrender the people.
I know God has situated me in the duty. Something I must always remember.
