A lot of people are concerned with whether other people are happy with them or not. This comes out in questions like, “Is your father happy with you?” or “I sure hope my aunt is happy I did this.” Most of the time the purpose for such feelings is to assure self that another person’s approval is being received. In other words, approval and fulfillment are found through the blessings of others.
This ultimately leads to the question of whether God is happy with us. But in truth, we already know the answer before we ask. It is not our job to make God happy, but rather to simply obey. If we follow God’s laws, and walk humbly with him, will he not be happy? Yet, whether or not God is happy is really a secondary point. God created us, and he will do with us as he pleases. God is just, and he will judge accordingly and do what is right.
