 Ephesians 5:10 and find out what pleases the Lord

 hen we love someone we want to please him or her.  We want to make them happy.  Do we think about pleasing the Lord?  Most of us are more consumed with pleasing ourselves, the maybe others and finally we might think of pleasing God.  In Ephesians we are told we can find out what pleases God.  How do we do that?  We read and study and meditate on His written word, the Bible.  It is full of ways to please God.  Most of us are more concerned with offending another person than we are of offending God.  We fail to witness to God’s goodness to us and His mercy because we fear another person may not agree or want to hear what we have to share.  When our children do something good we are quick to share it with others.  How much more should we share God’s goodness to us with others.  Advent is a good time to develop the habit.  I’m sure there is at least one thing every day you can share with at least one person to attest to God’s goodness and mercy.  Let us be pleasing to God.
