Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

In our lives, does it occur to us that we are to please God?  It seems to me, religion-wise, that often we choose our faith, beliefs, religion, based upon what pleases us.

Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise--the fruit of lips that openly profess his name.  And do not forget to do good and to share with others for with such sacrifices God is pleased.
                                                   --Hebrews 13:15,16 TNIV
Notice the sacrifice asked of us: to be decent human beings, to be kind and gracious to others; that's a sacrifice?  Evidently in a world that is inclined to be petty, impatient, intolerant, asserting one's own rights, while being slack regarding the rights of others.  Maybe that IS a sacrifice. we want to please God?  How we treat others has something to do with that!
