My Favorite Bible Quote About Acceptance

“Accept one another as Christ accepted you.”

— Romans 15:7

I like this bible passage the most because it shows us the unconditional love that’s rooted from the acceptance and compassion we give one another regardless of our differences.

In some way, out ability to accept mirrors the compassion of God towards humanity where He accepts us without judgement even when we fall short.

This quote also enables us to see that our differences, once accepted and respected, are not always a hindrance to unite as well as empathize with one another.
