Pleasing God

It has generally been supposed that the main object of all Christians is to live so that they may please God. Because He has been accepted as the dispenser of good, and this in accordance with His own great pleasure, even selfishness has argued to men the wisdom of pleasing Him.

"For the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart." Thus centuries ago did Samuel record God's voice to him. Paul, evidently having imbibed the spirit of this instruction, prayed for "the saints and faithful brethren in Christ" that they "might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God."
