STOP AND THINK – The challenge is to be yourself in a world that’s trying to make you like everyone else. (Author unknown)

If you pay attention to television commercials and magazine advertisements, you might be led to think that everyone should use the same toothpaste and wear the same brand of jeans. Although we value individualism, it seems that we’re being encouraged to follow the crowd and be like everyone else. Is that really a worthy goal?

Set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.
(1 Timothy 4:12)
