Why fit in when you were born to stand out? (Dr. Seuss, pen name for Theodor Seuss Geise, children’s author and illustrator)

Remember telling your parents, “Everybody else is doing it; why can’t I?” Conformity seems to be the goal when you’re young; you don’t want to be different from everyone else. Yet, we were all created with different personal characteristics and features. It’s those differences that can give us the opportunity to make unique contributions in our world.

We have different gifts (Romans 12:6)… There are different kinds of gifts… There are different kinds of service… There are different kinds of working (1 Corinthians 12:4, 5, 6).
