February 21: Our Desire to Please

Day 7


We must decide who our audience is going to be—our parents, children, friends, colleagues, boss, critics, spouse, self . . . or God?


Write down the healthy and unhealthy audiences in your life. Decide who you ultimately want your audience to be. (If you have the 2018 BEST LENT EVER Journal, you can write your thoughts in the space provided.)

If you’re reading Perfectly Yourself, read pages 34–39 (paperback version) or pages 36–41 (hardcover version).


Jesus, take my desire to serve and please, and use it to glorify you.

Who are you trying to please?
