Proverbs 16:7 – Please God rather than man

Proverbs 16:7
7
When a man’s ways please the Lord, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.

-To what lengths will we go to impress people and make them like us?  We tailor our personality to be approachable to others and tailor our appearance to be likeable by others.  I wouldn’t judge anyone for that, I do the same things; but I wonder if we put nearly as much time and effort into impressing God and making sure He likes us?  We try to win favor with those around us while forgetting that the heart of every person is in the Lord’s hands.  He can make a person like us or He can stir up a person’s wrath against us.  If we first seek the Lord and His Righteousness, He can easily give us favor with everyone we meet.
