What a crazy world we live in today. We live in a world that is ever changing. We also live in a world that is full of hate. This hate stems from people seeing things differently. Having different opinions, different tastes, different likes, etc. The reasons for all of the hate and discontent could go on forever I believe.
We as nation will find a reason to not like something even if there is no reason for us to. Makes sense, right? (That was rhetorical) But, it is true. If there is something we are not interested in, we will find a reason to not like it. But, in reality, there is no reason for us to try and find an excuse to not like this or that when it is something we just aren’t in too. We could just simply say, not interested, not my cup of tea, not something I’m in to, etc.
Instead we search for a reason to dislike or in some instances even hate whatever it is. I believe this is because this is how our society has evolved. It seems now it is common practice and sometimes expected that if we are not interested in something or someone, we must have a reason for it other than it just isn’t something we are in to.
When society asks us if we like something, the simple answer of No, is not accepted without further explanation. Why can’t we just accept someone’s answer of NO, and leave it at that?
All of this is so true when it comes to us. People. How much hate have you seen because we are different? Because we have different color skin. Because we come from a different country?
The fact of the matter is, every single one of us on this planet was created DIFFERENT on PURPOSE! We were all created for a higher purpose. We see how so many people are treated differently because they are DIFFERENT. Whether it is because their skin is a different color or that they have lots of money or none at all. Maybe, it is because they are missing a limb or have some other handicap.
What makes someone superior to anyone else because of a difference that someone has? We were all created in the same way. Everyone is different in some way. There is one unique thing that every single person on this earth was given when conceived. Something that is not like any other person. Our fingerprint.
This shows us that we were created to be DIFFERENT ON PURPOSE! It is our unique identity. It tells us who we are.
There is always going to be things that people do not agree on. There will always be those differences in the world. But, when it comes to physical or material differences, why don’t we embrace those?
Instead of saying, I have more money than you, why not use some of that to make something better for another? Instead of saying I can’t do this because I have this handicap, how about take those challenges you have faced and share with others that may need help or inspiration?
Everyone of us has something we can offer to someone else. It doesn’t matter how big or how small that something may be. We all have a purpose. Some of us find that purpose early in life. Others a little later, and some may never find their true purpose.
Just because you are different in some way, shape or form, doesn’t mean you are not as smart as someone else. It doesn’t mean that you are not capable things others can do. It doesn’t mean that others are superior to you. It simply means you are different. That is what makes this world such and amazing place. If everyone were the same, think of how boring this place could be.
We were all created to be different. We all have a unique identification. We all have a purpose. We all have something that we can give. Look past the differences. Whether those differences are in yourself or in someone else.
If you haven’t found your purpose yet, go find it! If you have, then use it to help someone or something.
“Your only limitations are those that you have placed on yourself”
“The purposes of a person’s heart are deep waters, but one who has insight draws them out” (Proverbs 20:5)
Until next time…
