Under Gods Command

Proverbs 16:7 When a man’s ways are pleasing to the LORD, he makes even his enemies live at peace with him. 

We want other people to like us, and sometimes we will do almost anything to win their approval.  But God tells us to put our energy into pleasing him instead.  Our effort to be peacemakers will usually make us more attractive to those around us, even our enemies.  But even if it doesn’t, we haven’t lost anything.  We are still pleasing God, the only one who truly matters.
