Hello – this is Keith Tyler, Worship Pastor at Cottonwood Creek Baptist Church with your inspirational thought of the day:

God loves you just the way you are. Here is the reality – We all struggle to fit in at times in our lives with school, sports, church, family, work and more. We have this desire to be accepted for who we are, and sometimes we desire this so much that we compromise our standards to be accepted by others. I think we have each been in these situations.

So today, ask  yourself these questions- If you are so intent about seeking acceptance from others, then who are you trying to win over? What is your motivation to be accepted?
