Once you start out chasing after people to please them day in and day out, the bar is continuously raised. Like an alcoholic or drug addict, it continuously takes more and more to please the other person. What pleased them yesterday becomes the standard for today. Tomorrow it will take even more.
When is enough, enough? At what point have we all lost control.
And when you are busy pleasing the snot out of one person, how many others are being neglected in the background.
Enough is enough when we crave the attention and love of other people more than we crave the attention and love of God. At that point everything we know to be true goes right into the toilet.
God craves our attention and love. He is all we will ever need. If we can just focus everything on Him, then everything else will fall into place.
Where have you looked to try to find value and self-worth?
Giving things away?
Wrong choices in love?
God held nothing back for you, even sending his own Son to die for you. Let's not waste that trying to please all the people round us.
