Daniel 1:9

Now God had brought Daniel into the favor and goodwill of the chief of the eunuchs.
Daniel 1:9

I'm sure it’s safe to say that most people desire to be liked. I think it's even easier to say that most people really desire to be liked by their supervisors or employers, so much so, that they are willing to go out of their way to please them. They will pretend to like something for the sake of bonding with them, they will agree even when they disagree, and the list goes on. Sometimes it may seem to pay off, but the minute you slip up, you could be right on the top of their dog list, no matter how much time you invested in trying to please them and get them to like you. It can be a very stressful thing to live your life that way, trying to please everyone, especially your boss. 

So here's a better way… please God. Just like Daniel, who chose to honor God instead of fearing man, he just looked to please the Lord. When we look to do His will and serve his purposes and don't give in to compromise, we put the power in God's hand to give us favor and goodwill. And if there is anyone I know that I trust to have the power to do that, it’s Him! And when He’s behind it, I don't have to sweat it when I disagree or follow through with my convictions.
