The feeling of being accepted by someone we love is a basic, human need. It increases our sense of self worth and confidence. Often, people seek it in people who do not have their best interests at heart. Or people may seek status.
Seeking acceptance from the wrong sources puts us on a dangerous path. “See that you look to God, and live” - Helaman
God does not accept us because of our title or position, but because of our hearts. They accept us because of who we are, and what we can become. Accepting their love will always uplift us.
The heart is the center of our feelings. We know our motives and desires, and when we are sincere we do not rationalize. A Broken heart is a soft, open, and receptive heart.
Worthily partake of the sacrament each week. PREPARE to take it, and repent to be worthy.
Accept and Faithfully accept callings in the church. Strive for righteousness.
Stand firmly and faithfully when the storms of life are raging all around us.
Seek the Lord’s acceptance, and enjoy his blessings. We are accepted of him, regardless of our limitations, status, ect.
