This is not so much a story as it is a poem. I have been spending a lot of time this week thinking about contentment, and I came across this quote:
“Because one believes in oneself, one doesn't try to convince others. Because one is content with oneself, one doesn't need others' approval. Because one accepts oneself, the whole world accepts him or her.”
― Lao Tzu
If this should be true with anyone, it should be true with a child of God!
