Today, pulling into the garage, I noticed this:
Do you see it? In the midst of blooms that have all turned their color, there stood one, just ONE, still white. I cannot believe how this spoke to me. The courage it takes to stand alone, to be different than everything that surrounds it.
And yet, isn’t that what we are called to do?
Are we not called to….
stand alone & not follow the crowd?
to do what is right & godly & hard?
to make a difference in the lives around us?
to live wisely? kindly? peaceably? sacrificially?
“Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.” (Romans 12:2 NLT)
Take courage today. Stand apart. Stand alone. Dare to be different.
