Ro 15:2 Let every one of us please [his] neighbour. We are not to seek to please ourselves, but to please others. Nor are we to seek to please them for our own selfish purpose, as is often the case, but for their good to edification, with a view to their good and upbuilding in Christ.

    "The GOD of Hope!" All our immaturity and stupidity can be corrected and healed, so that we truly become "A Man (or Woman) after His own heart." Our own individual weakness and inadequacy is the very thing by which the Lord's strength is made perfect: especially in showing the world, that His grace has nothing to do with men's estimations and opinions about us. Jesus is our HOPE, and our Victory!
