Let's Be Real: Approval
Seeking approval is a normal human activity...but if we do not seek approval from God (first and foremost) we set ourselves up for a disastrous pursuit. Trying to achieve an identity in the midst of culture, rather than receiving one from God, will always prove to be a stress-filled and often crushing way to live...and in the end empty and spiritually dead. When God is not at the center of our lives, then self and sin will be. Knowing our true identity as a child of God, and living out of that identity CHANGES EVERYTHING....and gives deep peaceful fulfillment to the human heart!
