Acceptance – Normally we have very little to offer our dogs. A warm lap, a smoky treat, and a good scratch in that perfect spot is all most dogs ask for. They couldn’t care less what your current 401k looks like, doesn’t matter to them one bit. Just so, God accepts us as we are, where we are. He knows we don’t have it all together, and will take our measly offerings of praise just the same. In fact, the one thing he requires is that WE admit our own failings – then we can be of some use to Him.
