“Be yourself, because the people who mind don’t matter, and the people who matter don’t mind.”
Dr. Seuss

1 Thessalonians 4:1-5:22 - As for other matters, brothers and sisters, we instructed you how to live in order to please God, as in fact you are living. Now we ask you and urge you in the Lord Jesus to do this more and more. For you know what instructions we gave you by the authority of the Lord Jesus. It is God’s will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality; that each of you should learn to control your own body in a way that is holy and honourable,  not in passionate lust like the pagans, who do not know God; and that in this matter no one should wrong or take advantage of a brother or sister.

Consider: how often we buy things, do things, say things and maybe even wear things to impress those around us, all in an attempt to be included.

Choose: this week to please God with your spending, your speech the way you do life etc. Choose to care about Gods opinion rather than the opinion of man.
