Don’t fit in. Stand out!

Don’t fit in. Stand out!

I’m not sure who gets the credit for this expression, but it’s simple and it’s smart.  What have any of us ever accomplished by fitting in?  I spent a good part of my life trying to fit in. It was exhausting and disappointing.  I could never keep up with the Jones’s and if I came close to doing so, I wasn’t happy anyway.

If you can get past the fear of stepping up and standing out, you will find that life is a lot more worth living on the edge.  You will have to stop worrying about what everyone thinks of you, but truth be told, it only matters what God thinks anyway.

Standing out isn’t easy, but more often than not, it’s the right thing to do. I’m blessed to have a pastor (Jon Weece) who reminds me that it’s okay to stand out and be just plain weird!  If only I’d known that being called a weirdo back in the day was actually a good thing!

Stand up for what’s right. Stand out for the truth!

By the way, you can be enjoy being weird too. Come to Southland Christian Church this weekend and find out why being weird is a good thing!
