The Legacy of Mister Rogers (and Love)

I saw this t-shirt at Spencer’s in the mall and I knew that one day it would be mine. No, this was not in 1989. This was a few weeks ago. In 2019.

Normally, I don’t buy from Spencer’s. They have some questionable items, so I typically avoid that store (for me personally). But this time, my curiosity got the better of me.

I love the message. You are special just the way you are. The Bible says that God loves you just the way you are. I’m thankful because I haven’t always been my best self.

I believe that means that no matter where you are, you can always come home to God. The door is always open. Jesus said that if anyone comes to Him in faith, He will never cast them out.

That’s the hope I cling to every single day. God loves me as I am but His love is making me better. No, not better. New. He’s making me new. Brand new.

It’s not a license for me to live anyway I want and to presume on God’s grace. It’s to compel me to want to live for God and to be transformed into the likeness of Jesus.

I miss Mister Rogers. He was indeed truly special.
