People pleasing is common among leaders in the local church.
People pleasing is when you lead in such a way that you attempt to keep everyone happy. You receive affirmation and therefore feel good.
The congregation is happy, so they feel good; seems harmless enough.
But the ill-gained affirmation you receive will hurt you and your leadership over the long-haul. And of course, you can’t keep everyone happy even if that was a good idea.
You will end up exhausted, and some of the followers that are happy with you at the moment will turn against you the first time you attempt to make a tough decision that doesn’t go to their liking.
