People-pleasing leads to a life where you’re never succeeding. You jump through all those hoops to get people to like you, but you know what’s waiting for you on the other side? More hoops. Focus on what God wants the focus on, as Proverbs 16:7 says, ‘when a man’s ways please the LORD, he makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.’

Anonymous asked:

As a Christian, what do you think about "slut-shaming"?

peterdwebb answered:

As a Christian I believe that everyone has sinned and the only hope is Jesus Christ. Those who like to condemn others forget that they are in the same position, hopeless without God. 

If we hold a grudge, if we bring others to shame, we’re told that God in heaven won’t forgive us. 

Unforgiveness and condemnation is just as much a sin as adultery.

Check out how Jesus interacted with prostitutes. There was so much love and kindness. 

The message of sin leading to death must always be coupled with the preaching of the availability of total forgiveness, and the knowledge that we are in the same situation: completely dependant on the mercy of God.

I hope you fall in love
With someone who always texts back and never lets
You fall asleep thinking you’re
I hope you fall in love with someone
Who holds your hand during the scary parts of
Horror movies and burns
Cookies with you when you’re
Too busy dancing around the
I hope you fall in love with
Someone who sees galaxies in your eyes
And hears music in your
I hope you fall in love with someone who
Tickles you and makes you smile
On hard days and on easy
But beyond all that I hope
You fall in love with someone
Who will never leave you behind
And who will never take you
For granted, someone who
Will stand by you when you’re
Right and stand by you
When you’re wrong,
Someone who has seen you at your worst
And has loved you
I hope you fall in love
With someone who
Kisses you in the rain
And hugs you in the cold and
Wouldn’t have you any other
