What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever done to be liked / fit in / be called beautiful? Diet? Gym? Surgery? Dyed hair? Makeup?

A mom in the US fed her daughter tapeworms so she’d lose weight for a beauty-pageant! (http://bit.ly/1pszUUm) Sometimes us humans can go to rather extreme lengths to earn approval

Colbie Caillat’s song ‘Try’ (http://bit.ly/1nfza3y) echoes Jesus’ unconditional love for us:

Ephesians 2:8, 9 ‘For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.’

You don’t have to try so hard, He loves you.
