The Truth About Pleasing God—Dexter Howard

Focusing on self is the opposite of focusing on God. Anyone completely absorbed in self ignores God, ends up thinking more about self than God. That person ignores who God is and what He is doing. And God isn’t pleased at being ignored.

But I will honor those who honor me, and I will despise those who think lightly of me. (I Samuel 2:30, NLT)

Over the past couple of weeks we have focused on what it looks like to honor God the Father.  Honoring God is putting Him FIRST and placing value on what pleases Him.  Honoring God is obeying His Word concerning what we do with our time, talents, and treasure.  You are also honoring God when you commit to loving people and using your resources to build His Kingdom.

The Heart of a Servant- Dexter Howard

For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.

Matthew 20:28

Normally, around the Christmas Holiday many people battle feelings of depression, even to the point of feeling like giving up.  Personally I believe it's because the commercialism of the season causes you to focus on what or who you don't have.  If you don't have money to buy gifts you feel depressed about your situation.  You feel lonely and sad if there is a void of family or special people during the season.
