Approval ratings?

I try to please everyone in everything I do, not seeking my own advantage.  
1 Corinthians 10:33

Am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God?  Or am I trying to please man?  If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.  Galatians 1:10

When Paul faced a choice between pleasing himself and pleasing others, he pleased others.  He would not seek his own advantage.  He chose to be humbly selfless.

When he faced a choice between pleasing others and pleasing Christ, he pleased Christ.  He would not seek human approval.  He chose to be boldly independent.
