Prejudice is a learned trait, but it can be unlearned. It takes a renewed mind to remove the blinders of prejudice and see people for who they are...instead of what they look like.
What are your priorities? It takes work to cultivate a family and make a happy home, but the long-term rewards are worth every effort.
Being genuinely happy for the good fortune of others doesn’t come to us naturally. Often it’s easier to commiserate with friends rather than celebrate with them. But when you rejoice with those who rejoice, you’re modelling Christ.
We’re all tempted to get even when we’ve been wronged; our natural reaction is to retaliate. However, a better response extends grace. It not only demonstrates self-control but it shows you don’t take your cues from how the world would respond—but rather from what God wants you to do.
It’s easy to compare ourselves to others—but there’s no reason to! God made each of us unique and to Him we are works of art.
Others may see you as someone you’re not but God is never fooled. He notices everything and knows if you’re a fake. When you stop trying to be someone else, you free yourself up to be who you are.
As we enter adulthood in our faith, one of the most significant realizations to dawn upon us is a healthy understanding of and appreciation for the church.
