A daily devotional through the Bible speaking with God as Adam and Eve may have in the garden east of Eden. Our website


Paul summed up his teaching with a good motto you should remember. Live a life that is pleasing to God. Paul goes on to give you a few examples of what that means, but the bottom line rests in that simple motto. Live a life that is pleasing to God. Too many times I see people trying to live their lives to please other people instead of pleasing God. They look to make other people happy.

So, there we are. Paul’s summation. He got it absolutely right. Please God and your life will be on the right path. You will love others if you live to please God. You will live a holy life if you please God. You will live a moral life to please God. To please God, you will live generously and care for the needs of others. You will avoid sexual immorality and learn how to take charge of your own body. You will do all those things Paul talks about if you live a life to please God.
