When I became
a parent, I began to understand the importance of treating my kids as unique and independent people.
One loves boundaries, another one pushes on boundaries, and another one doesn’t seem to see the boundaries at all. One loves soccer, one loves lacrosse, one loves drawing.
The truth is, we are all unique! Sometimes, society praises certain qualities over others—but God created each of us with a divine purpose in mind.
Psalm 139:13-14 in the Bible says, “For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.”
This week, consider what your unique qualities are. Are you confident, charismatic, or do you pay special attention to detail? Then, consider how God might want to use you to help spread His message.
Are there people in your circle that don’t go to church? Maybe you’re the person to share the Good News with them! Are you a leader in your community, school, or neighborhood? Perhaps others would go to church with you if you invited them.
In any case, know that you are unique, and you were created for a purpose.
“The truth is, we are all unique! Sometimes, society praises certain qualities over others—but God created each of us with a divine purpose in mind.”
