Nothing beats an original. Definitely not a cheap copy. Imagine you are looking for your mother in a crowd; the women are put to one side but you can’t find her. All mothers are brought but none of them is your mother. All good mothers are told to step forward but none of them is her. They finally ask you to describe your mom and you say, “She is tall and dark with short hair”. They ask you to wait and in a few minutes they bring you this tall, dark, short haired lady, but sadly she is not your mother. This is the uniqueness of your mother, no one is like her; she is one of a kind.
In the same way, God has made you unique. You are not like everyone else. You are gifted, talented and blessed like no other. You are one of a kind and not a cheap copy. Sadly many try to be someone they are not. They want to dress like, talk like, and walk like so and so. They are oblivious to the original because they are caught up trying to be the best copy possible. Even on a bad day, any original is better than the best copy. You are unique! Take the time to grow the original God has created in you. Your gifts, talents, capacity, calling and destiny is all unique. There will never be another you. So don’t allow the unique you to get lost in the chaos of trying to be someone you are not.
SCRIPTURE READING: TITUS 2:14
Who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works.
DEVOTION PRAYER: Dear God, thank you for making me unique. I am gifted and blessed like no other. My gifts, calling and destiny are all unique. May I continue to walk in this grace that makes me peculiar in Jesus’ name Amen.
