Standing Out vs Fitting In

By Bryant

We were all made to stand out and make a difference. Every single person desires to fit in and be accepted. So which one do you choose? Can you really do both at the same time?
I think deep down inside each and every one of us is a desire to stand out, to make a difference, to be different. However sometimes during that process we end up feeling alone, lonely, without a family or a place to belong. Deep down inside each of us is a desire to be accepted and fit in. However sometimes during that process we end up feeling like we are settling, that we aren’t really being true to ourselves. This ends up making us feel like we have to make a choice. Do we choose to stand out and be unique or do we fall in line and just go with the status quo in an effort to fit in. You have 2 options, fit in or stand out.
“We all have a third option when it comes to trying to fit in and belong but desiring to stand out and make a difference”
I love seeing these stories in the Bible where Jesus was presented with two options, both options never really being that promising. He had a way of coming up with a third option that no one else had thought of. This third option turned out to be the best option. We all have a third option when it comes to trying to fit in and belong but desiring to stand out. The third option is knowing who we are before trying to show the world who we are. We discover who we truly are as sons of a Heavenly Father. You see, we can all make a difference and be unique and this can be from our position as sons. From knowing who we are and that we belong. It is in this third option that we can not only change the world, but live from a place of true contentment that we have a place at the table no matter our success or failure.

Know who you are, show the world.
