U is for Uncompromising
U is for Uncompromising.
Sometimes we see this as being a bad thing. We apply it to people who will not bend to meet us in the middle on something. They can be seen as rigid, unyielding.
God is uncompromising in His holiness, in purity, in love.
More comfortingly, He is uncompromising in wanting the very best for His children.
When we are being sanded down, reshaped, it can seem uncomfortable. We can feel that actually, we are fine as we are. So we're not as good as we could be, but does it really matter?
Yes! It matters. There are certain things we should be uncompromising about. As I heard it described once, we should be like peaches - soft and malleable on the outside, and rock hard on the core things that really matter.
How far are you willing to compromise? And what things are you completely firm on?
