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 servant of Christ. Galatians 1:11 (NRSV)

Just something I read recently, that struck me. It seemed relevant in light of my recent return from my first Mission Trip. Thinking about the whole "justified by works and not by faith alone" thing.... The need to serve, but NOT for "human approval", or to "please people"... And my own struggles with the "pride" trap.
