‘Obviously, I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s Servant.’
Do you spend your time trying to please everybody? Paul had to speak harshly to the Christian’s in Galatia because they were in serious danger. He did not apologize for his straitforward words, knowing that he could not serve Christ faithfully if he allowed the Galatian Christian’s to remain on the wrong track. Whose approval are you seeking? Others or God’s? Pray for the courage to seek God’s approval above anyone elses.
