Devotionals for Dieter's

For there is no respect of persons with God.
Andrea was furious. She hadn't wanted to go on the hike in the first place, and now she was falling farther and farther behind. No one would give her time to catch up. Some of them were even laughing at her. It wasn't her fault she wasn't in good physical condition. She had to carry around a lot more weight than they did. It just wasn't fair. In this life, we don't get a lot of breaks. Just because we're overweight doesn't mean we deserve special treatment. God doesn't give us preferential treatment and neither does healthy fit people. We shouldn't expect them to either. God wants all of His children to be the best they can possibly be. He expects us all to do our best and He loves us unconditionally.
Today's thought: I am trying my best to please God and that is all He asks of us!
