What is it like for you to be different, to not always fit into the norm’ of what’s happening around you?

Here’s a thought (featured on a desk calendar) about the character of AUTHENTICITY:

Many are afraid of individuality, of being different. God did not create any two of us alike. The truth is that you are a truly unique being confronting the rest of the world in a specific fashion. Seek out your deepest convictions, stand by them and live by them.

But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath; but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation (James 5:12).
