Let's be very honest, being an example is often about being different. But most of us do not want to be different, we tend to prefer to blend - in with the crowd. We work so very hard to get others to like us, and the safest way to do this is actually to blend in.

But I want to share something with you, following Christ has never been nor will it ever be about blending in. You might say that being different is risky, and rather uncomfortable. Sometimes you will find yourself alone because you are different. Actually, that's what being a representative for Christ is all about(2Cor. 5:20). Spend that extra time today making a difference by simply being different!
