|“Am I now trying to win the approval of men, or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ.”|
|(Galatians 1:10, NIV)|
We are created with the longing for acceptance and desire for approval. It is what drives us and propels us forward. Even before we were born, as a fetus, we moved and kicked to get our mother’s attention. Having witnessed multiple process of pregnancies as well as process of labour, I have grown to be fascinated by the process a young baby need to go through from birth to adulthood. It may not be obvious, but at each stage in life, we all strive for approval and acceptance. A young child may behave a certain way because they crave for attention from their parents. We never seemed to get enough of it.
