This is an invitation to all Christians everywhere. Post photos with hashtags #becauseofhim or #startingtoday about simple, day-to-day ways we can commit to being a little more like Christ, ways we can seek His help to be and do a little better. #BecauseofHim, we can grow and learn and improve and make mistakes and try again. And every day this week, the #BecauseofHim challenge will include a different theme on which you can post photos. Or choose a topic of your own. Together we can unite our voices in sharing our faith in and gratitude for the Savior, and our desires to follow Him.
Why is it that something so amazing as the atonement and resurrection of our Saviour taken and turned into just another way Mormons can shame and depreciate themselves. Almost half of those “challenges” require that people focus on their shortcomings or weaknesses. Isn’t that done enough? Why not celebrate by all he has helped us to do, rather than mistakes made or ways we ‘aren’t good enough’.
