We will choose God. Over and over again, we will choose to LIVE, clinging to the most compassionate Father we could ever imagine. We choose Him because He leads us to generously love and have compassion.
As you care for your changing body and your growing mind, remember that teaching kindness and compassion is our calling. We offer kindness and compassion to ourselves and those He draws near to us. “She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue” (Proverbs 31:26).
