When the time was up, they looked healthier and stronger than all those who had been eating the royal food” (Daniel 1:12-15 GNT).

    God accepts us, despite our messy lives, impure motives, and irritating attitudes. One of the ways we reflect God’s love and bring him glory is to accept each other just as he accepts us.
