Galatians 1:10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.
Unlike Paul the majority of us spend our lives trying to please men. We are too concerned about what other people think. We please our crowd, our peers but forget that the real goal is to please the God of Heaven, the Lord Jesus Christ.
Paul says that it is an “either or choice!” You please one or the other. Men want us to do things that are acceptable to them. God has other plans. The gospel is not man pleasing. It goes against the grain. If you believe that salvation is by grace with no human effort then you will have separated yourself from most every religious person in the world/
Paul would rather preach grace, lose human friends, but please the God of Heaven. Who are you trying to please?
