Wouldn’t it be wonderful to live in a world were everyone thought like you, liked what you liked and disliked what you disliked?
Now, what if you where the boring type, then everyone else would be boring and that wouldn’t be fun.
What if you where the type of person that liked to laugh all the time? That means there wouldn’t be any quiet moments in the world — you’d finish one conversation with a laughing panic attack only to encounter another individual down the street ready to laugh it up again.
Would there be any streets or buildings, amusement parks or airplanes? Would there be air conditioning or heating units? Radios or computers?
You see, in this wonderful world that God created he gave us variety, color, differences, and ideas that make the world complete the way it is.
Everyone has a part in some shape or form, whether it be small or great. These contributions were made through our differences.
Let us celebrate the life that God has given us and learn to cope with one another with the love of Jesus Christ. I need you and you need me. But one thing is certain; we all need Jesus.
