Thomas Merton in his book, The Storey Mountain, talks about coming to a crossroads where he had to decide, "will I live to please God, or please man."
He understood that to love God was to do things for God. This was the only way to fulfill the destiny we were created for.
This temptation to lose sight of God and focus on pleasing others has never been greater. The entire infrastructure of social media is based on people's desire to be liked and accepted. Where does this rabbit hole lead. Is there another way to live?
