I have a new motto in life, to please God. I tried many other mottoes, 'obedience is my motto', 'glorify God', 'set an example for the world'. But my silly, stupid, unreliable heart always seemed to desert me.
I then realized how wonderful it is to please someone. Has anyone ever pleased you immensely? Your spouse/parents/children/
friends/strangers? What does it feel like when they please you? Doesn't your heart feel light, don't you smile constantly? I want God to be in that state of perpetual happiness.
I would absolutely love to obey Him, glorify Him etc., but they are just the route to please Him. They are not the end all of everything.
Any tips to please God will be welcome. If they is a hole in my logic, please point it out. If you think there is a better motto, please tell me.
