Whom Are You Living To Please?

It is very easy to please men and women by doing or saying what they want. When you do so, you receive human approval. Basically there is nothing wrong with pleasing human beings provided that you please God first by doing so. In everything we do, we should put God first. It is good to please your spouse in all essential aspects of life, doing the will of God in the process. However, if pleasing a person makes you to violate your conscience and sin against God,  then refrain from doing so. Let each person search his or her conscience in line with the word of God, doing what is right and of good report.
The Social media is a good forum to interact with families, friends and acquaintances. Do we like or comment on posts because they come from our friends or because of their importance and relevance? Must you like a  post only to feel bad later? Must you write another post because X or Y has reacted to it? 
For the Christian, Heaven bound, we should provide for things that are honest and of good report both in the sight of God and man.
Jokes and humour can be good and healthy, but not at the expense of morality, good conscience and edification.
My father in the Lord, Very Rev Dr Mike Oye once taught us this song among very much of sound doctrine, in the very early years:
There are things non-Christians may, I cannot;
LORD make them plain.
There are things all people can, I may not;
Christ help me through;
Yet there are things non-Christians can’t do;
Only I can do;
That is praying, living daily for Christ;
That only I can do.

In our daily living for Christ may we be found true, faithful, diligent, loving, compassionate, considerate, bold and firm. The LORD Who called us is faithful to keep us to the end. He is our Rewarder. Abundant Grace be with you. Shalom.
