I Corinthians 10:33
We are to put others before ourselves and not to be selfish. In this way, we attempt to please others rather than ourselves. However, when it comes to preaching the truth, we cannot be concerned about what others think: we must please God. Otherwise, we are no longer preaching the truth but simply preaching what others want to hear.
Put another way, we are to put God first, others second, and ourselves last. Thus, we should please others above ourselves, but when there is a conflict between pleasing others and pleasing God, we should please God.
