There isn’t any pleasing some people. The trick is to stop trying. (Robert Mitchum, American film actor and singer)

We have all met people who seem never to be satisfied. As Mitchum says, there just is no way to please them. And we sometimes continue to be frustrated because we keep on trying to make them happy. Should we stop trying? Or, should we try to discover what their real desires are and find ways to help meet those needs?

Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days. … You open your hand and satisfy the desires of every living thing (Psalm 90:14; 145:16).
