Different is Beautiful!

I am linking up for the Five Minute Friday. The FMF is hosted by Kate Motaung over at our Five Minute Friday website. Today’s word prompt is “different.” We would love to have you join us.

Each of us unique. Created by God. Fearfully and wonderfully made. Beloved children of God. But too often we want everyone to be like us…to act like us, to think like us, to believe like us. But the truth is there is a reason we were all created differently. Our differenceness is what makes us unique.

Im not tall like my sister. I don’t have the artistic ability that my friend KA has. My sister doesn’t write like me. Yet our differences are what make a beautiful tapestry of God’s handiwork. Each thread designed uniquely and for a purpose.

Mary was a virgin. Joseph was a carpenter. Yet they were chosen to be Jesus parents in Earth. Throughout Scripture, there were so many chosen because they were different. (For some reason I can’t get the book title “Same Kind of Different as Me” out of my head)

Different is what makes us beautiful, unique, and loved for who God created us to be!

(And because I can’t get this song out of my head since hearing the word prompt I have to share this too)

  1. I absolutely agree with this, Tara. Diversity and differences are all part of God’s amazing creativity. We’re the ones who sometimes fight it – maybe for our own security and comfort. But there is so much beauty in that tapestry.
