Devo Day 22: Accept One Another

Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.
Romans 15:7

One of the hardest things about being a girl is living up to other people’s standards.  We are constantly bombarded with pictures and videos of girls that we think are skinnier, prettier, stronger, or happier than we are.  It can be hard to get past these feelings.

One way to feel better about yourself is to not compare yourself to others. We need to learn to be thankful for the body that God gave us, and take care of it and use it to do things that honor God.  And it is just as important to help our friends and others feel good about themselves to! The easiest way to do this is by accepting others just as they are.

God made each of us. Therefore we need to accept ourselves and accept others, because that is what God has called us to do!

Encourage others. Love others. And accept others.  Not only will this help others feel good, but it will help you feel good, too!
