The need to fit in has increased since the advent of social networking sites such as Facebook, where a person’s worth may be measured by how many friends they have. However, as Catholic New York columnist Mary DeTurris Poust wisely notes, “Life is not a popularity contest.”
“Too often we think becoming successful or holy means becoming someone different than the person we are created to be,” DeTurris Poust continues. “Truth is, we are loved exactly as we are, by a God who holds us in the palm of His hand no matter how many Facebook friends we have.”
For the Lord will be your confidence. (Proverbs 3:26)
Messiah, may everything in our lives draw us closer to You.
