Day 7: Proverbs 31:30

“Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain,
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.”

My actions and achievements do not dictate my worth. How can I love and serve my family and friends if my worth is caught up in whether or not they approve of me? The fear of rejection will paralyze me because I am never good enough. Pursue God — get to know his character and learn to see him as he truly is (all-powerful, just, merciful). With him in his rightful place — the object of my worship and the one who deserves my full obedience — I can live out of the joy of already being accepted by a gracious God instead of in fear of rejection by the world.
