Being Unique in a Culture of Conformity

Luke 7:31 And the Lord said, “To what then shall I liken the men of this generation, and what are they like? 32 They are like children sitting in the marketplace and calling to one another, saying: ‘We played the flute for you, And you did not dance; We mourned to you, And you did not weep.’ 33 For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine, and you say, ‘He has a demon.’ 34 The Son of Man has come eating and drinking, and you say, ‘Look, a glutton and a winebibber, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’ 35 But wisdom is justified by all her children.”

Jesus described His generation as a "monkey-see-monkey-do" culture. He characterized that generation for finding fault with unique people such as the "Son of Man" and "John the Baptist." It seems our culture has not changed much after all these centuries.

Last time I checked, we were not destined to do or like things just because everyone else does. We value working together as well as value encouraging the exploration of God's unique gifts within every heart and life. The body of Christ is made stronger when we understand our unique purpose.

Let's go with God's wisdom where ever He leads and dance to His tune.
