Day 24: Different

When you look at yourself, do you see nothing but ordinary?
Nondescript?
Average?

When you see something about you that is different,
do you devalue your difference?
See it as weird?
Something to be hidden?
Something to be altered to resemble standards not made for you,
you who are a citizen of the Kingdom that lasts forever?

This eternal Kingdom is ruled by the King who will never be dethroned.
Remember who you.
Remember whose you are.
You are different.
Own your difference.

“For once you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord; walk as children of Light [live as those who are native-born to the Light] (for the fruit [the effect, the result] of the Light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth), trying to learn [by experience] what is pleasing to the Lord [and letting your lifestyles be examples of what is most acceptable to Him—your behavior expressing gratitude to God for your salvation]” (Ephesians 5:8-10, AMP).
