Dealing With Rejection
- 2014 26 Feb
There are always going to be people who don’t like us. If we spend all our energy ‘being liked,’ we lose important parts of ourselves. We were never meant to be clones of each other. Scripture makes it clear that we were “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14). God didn’t make us exactly like one another—some are introverts, some extroverts. Some are savers, some spenders. Some like large celebrations, other like intimate, small gathering. Remember, the way to be perfect is to be perfectly you, and know that you will always have your critics.
