– Therefore, accept each other just as Christ has accepted you so that God will be given glory. (NLT) -Romans 15:7
When someone is different than you, a lot of times we avoid them because of their differences. What if their differences are something we disagree with? We should accept them anyway. Often, we confuse acceptance and approval but the two are not the same. Everyone wants to be accepted and if others don’t feel that from us, how could we ever show them that Jesus Christ accepts them? Think of one person you know you will encounter today who is different from you and find ways to help them feel your acceptance of them.
