Steak vs.Chicken

I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. Psalm 139:14

Have you ever noticed that by nature we usually want everybody to be like ourselves? If someone likes different things than we do or thinks differently than we do we call them weird or strange. The truth of the matter is we are all, every one of us different. Some like chicken better than steak. {weird} some like Fords rather than Chevrolets. {go figure?} My point is that God made us all different. We all have different likes and dislikes, different tastes, different hobbies, physiques, interest, talents and it was His doing. We are all fearfully and wonderfully made. Why mention all this? I just want to remind you it is ok to be you. And it’s okay to be me. Many times people spend a great deal of their time trying to be somebody else, trying to fit in someone else’s mold. Striving to be someone or something they are not. Or they spend a great deal of their time trying to make others fit in their mold. Peer pressure affects adults as well as teenagers. I am not going to try to fit in your box and I am going to try not to force others to fit in mine.

Of course as a Bible believing Christian I must speak out against sin and ungodliness. A license to do wrong in the name of tolerance or diversity is not what I am talking about. God’s word must always be my final authority as a Christian. I am discussing the personality and character traits that make all of us different. Pride and our fallen nature make us think that everyone ought to be just like ourselves. Christians can be remarkably cruel to each other at times.

We can be very cliquish and judgmental over things that are not that important. We are constantly trying to outdo the other guy. I truly believe persecution would cure a lot of our nonsense but who wants that? For myself, I am going to try to do better, but that steak vs. chicken thing really bugs me!

“I will praise Him; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made!”
