Am I now
seeking human approval,
or God’s approval?

Or am I
trying to please people?

If I were still pleasing people,
I would not be
a slave of Christ.

    --Galatians 1.10

In light of the work of Brene Brown I was recently interrupted by this text.

How much am I trying to please people? Addicted to pleasing people? Obsessed with pleasing people? Terrified of not pleasing people?

How much shame-resilience is needed to be a slave of Christ?
