We’re going to be doing something different this month, and we’ve been itching to tell you all about it! February’s the month to celebrate love, and in our culture we spend no shortage of time and money to do so. But as we’ve been taking a good hard look around us—at ourselves, our families, our media and our world, we’ve realized so many of us struggle with one very fundamental thing—loving ourselves, and seeing ourselves as God does.
We spend our money trying to fit in, we pour over magazines and the latest how-to articles, and spend hours trying to emulate the beauty that the world glorifies. But at the end of the day, chasing after the world’s standard of beauty and worth only leaves us exhausted, self-conscious, and hungry for true acceptance. And that’s what the world wants, to leave us feeling like we have to buy more, do more, and know more in order to fit in.
