I once heard from a lady who was made to believe that God is only pleased with pink or white fingernail polish.
Religious leaders said that any other color was of the devil!
I know that is an extreme example, but so many Christians try to make God happy in similar ways—by maintaining dos and don’ts.
The problem with this is that the more you TRY the more you feel like a disappointment.
Can you relate?
