Why do we as a people constantly find ourselves looking to others to Validate us? Why are we wanting to fit in a group? Why do we press so hard to be accepted by MAN? Not everyone is going to accept us that is a fact! Do you know that no matter what you and I do they will not accept us?
The reason you and I don’t fit in is because God needs us to be that light on that hill.
Romans 12: 1-2 says it best, this is from the Message Bible, Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.
