Who Are You Pleasuring?

What pleasures you? Who knows how to pleasure you the most? How much time do you spend learning to pleasure others? These are all questions that prompted the topic: Who Are You Pleasuring?

We spend so much time thinking and learning about how to pleasure the ones we love: our spouses, children, family, friends, coworkers, supervisors, lovers and last but not least ourselves. Sometimes this pleasure drives every aspect of our life because of the amount of thought we give to it.

One time, in my late teens, I bought a book about how to pleasure your man through oral sex. I read that book in quick time, without any issues, being very eager to use my new found knowledge. When I was finished reading the book, I shared it with a friend. Her mom found the book and to date her mom still dislikes me. Then there I was, faced with the feelings of regret and disappointment. Was it even really worth it? My point is we go the extra mile to find out how to please who we feel the need to pleasure.

As I sit back and reflect, somehow, I have missed the true mark of who I should be pleasuring FIRST. Am I saying that we shouldn’t be pleasured? AHTAL! We are worthy of pleasure, and it is quite fine that we please others. However, we should prioritize our pleasuring. Many of the things we do to and for ourselves are really temporal and have no long lasting effects but instead have long lasting consequences. If we stop to think of the sum of time we put into pleasing others and instead utilize it to pleasing WHO CREATED US, we will ultimately be happier. In pleasing God we seek to please ourselves and others- He knows what we need in all aspects of our lives. In pleasuring our Creator comes long lasting and pleasurable effects with positive and everlasting consequences.

“When a man's ways please the LORD, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.”Proverbs 16:7
