Many of us are naturally drawn to people who are similar to us. We walk into a room and gravitate to people who dress like us, look like us, or share similar interests. 

However, everyone is looking for a group of people who will accept them for who they are, especially in high school. This is exactly what Jesus does. He accepts all of us and welcomes us to be a part of his crew. If you’ve experienced acceptance from God, what would it look like for you to now extend acceptance to someone else? Someone who is different than you? 

This week, find one person who is different than you and show them acceptance. Invite them to sit at your lunch table or even invite them to hang out with you this weekend. Imagine the positive impact you could have simply by extending acceptance.
