Five Minute Friday: Connect
Every Friday we spend five minutes spilling words and we forego editing and fretting, and just write. It’s fun, it’s free, and you should click the link above and try it! Or at least, read what some others write for fun on Fridays.
People are so varied.
All made in One image yet all of us so very, very different. Even in one family, there are no two personalities alike. Yes, one has mom’s eyes and one talks spasticly with their hands like…someone else in the family. We have similarities, for sure, but all of us process the world differently.
An older saint with years of discipling others once said:
If I’m working with someone and they start to act just like me, I’ve failed.
Failed because we aren’t out to create “little-me’s”. Failed, because we are each uniquely made in His image and when Christ is truly formed in us, He is the similarity, the connection, between us all.
I like to think that I have an eclectic set of friends and family, all of us hodge-podged together and working out this sanctification, becoming more like Christ.
It’s ok if we’re different.
What matters is Christ.
