This has been a very different day so far. I have never met any of these 60 other people before, but each one, in one way or another, resembles someone I have come across before. It makes me wonder how many others out there are very similar to me.
I am learning though. I’m learning how to be a better leader. If I do lead a team this summer, it’ll be a great learning experience and easily help me in other areas of life.
Life. Crazy. It will change so much as it continues on. There are so many people on this planet. We can’t all be that different. I am just one of them.
I read something today that really opened my eyes: Romans 14.
Who am I to pass judgement on another one of my Lord’s servants? He has given them different duties and a very different way of handling matters than He has given me. I must be responsible for what I know, and focus less on what others don’t know. I simply have to do my work for Him, for no one else can do what I must do.
Sure, I am special, important, and unique, but the real truth is that everyone else around me is as well. And I should focus my efforts making them feel that way, and less time on proclaiming myself as such.
We all want to belong, yet we also want others to see us as unique.
We are all alike. We are all different.
