We then who are strong ought to bear with the scruples of the weak, and not to please ourselves. 2 Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, leading to edification. 3 For even Christ did not please Himself; but as it is written, “The reproaches of those who reproached You fell on Me.” 4 For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope. 5 Now may the God of patience and comfort grant you to be like-minded toward one another, according to Christ Jesus, 6 that you may with one mind and one mouth glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. — Romans 15:1-6.
A Christian who is strong ought to support the weaker brother and not please himself. Even Jesus did not please Himself, and nor should we. This calls for patience, but the ‘God of patience’ can give us a like-mindedness and a desire to glorify God which will make us want to please others, rather than follow our own preferences.
