accepted without exception

Accept one another as the messiah accepted you.

God never requires us to become acceptable before accepts us.
Acceptance means we are honest about our need for healing.
We should listen Without condemning. Extend a helping hand, we should accept each other because Jesus showed us the way. He saw the ugly and embarrassing corners of our hearts and loved us anyways.

Something I learned while completing my twelve step program for N/A that i thought went with this theory was that in Alcoholics Anonymous it has a great lesson for anyone who want to understand what a healthy relationship is. None one puts on shows. Everyone cheers you on when you have a good week, and everyone hurts WITH you when you fall. We are all on this journey of life together as one.

They (like as God does) accept you unconditionally, with all our nasty habits and all. They do not judge you as God tell us we should not Judge others.

The Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can;and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will;That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next.Amen.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;in all your ways acknowledge him,and he will direct your paths.
Proverbs 3, 5-6
