Ponder:Do I let what people think and say rob me of my joy? Whose approval should I really be seeking?
Pray:Ever-encouraging God, remind me that the only opinion I need to concern myself with is Yours. Give me the strength and courage I need to always choose the right thing, no matter how unpopular.
