Welcome to Verse of the Day!

Today's Bible Verse:

1 Thessalonians 2:4
... but just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, so we speak, not to please man, but to please God who tests our hearts. (ESV)

Today's Inspiring Thought: Pleasing God - The Key to Success

He may not be a Bible scholar, but Bill Cosby has spoken many words of wisdom in his lifetime. This quote of his lines up with spiritual wisdom from Scripture: "I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody."

In my forty+ years, I've learned that it's virtually impossible to please everybody. Discovering true freedom and personal success begins with ceasing our quest to please other people, and turning our focus to God. Pleasing him alone is the key.
