Accepting Ourselves

Description

When you look in the mirror, do you like what you see? If you’re criticizing yourself today, remember that other people see all of you—not just your flaws.

When you look in the mirror, do you like what you see?

A friend of mine lived most of her life with a gap between her two front teeth. And she was convinced that it was the first thing people saw when they met her. A few years ago, someone gave her the opportunity to have the gap fixed and she was thrilled! The surprising thing was that it took a while for her friends and family to notice the difference.

Isn’t it funny how we spend so much time focusing on our flaws that we think everyone else is doing the same thing?  It’s more likely that they’re so focused on their own flaws that they hardly notice ours.  So, if you’re criticizing yourself today, remember that other people see all of you—not just your flaws.  Besides, the Bible says you are fearfully and wonderfully made.  Perfect?  No, but definitely wonderful!
