You Aren’t Cool Unless You Homeschool

I went to a church once where you weren’t part of the in-crowd if you didn’t homeschool your kids.  I went to another church where you weren’t cool unless you were close to the big-shot pastor.  It was lame.

Every culture has some sort of standard of conformity.  If you want to be liked you must _____________.    That blank spot can be filled with endless things.  Some of those standards are important, others are just plain silly.

I’m starting to think that lots of people never fully achieve what God has for them because they are too afraid of being different, of breaking away from the herd.

“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” Romans 12:2

That verse seems to indicate that you’ll never be able to really lock into the will of God if you are worried about what everyone else thinks.  Ask God what you are supposed to do.  He may want you to break away from the pack.  It might be scary, but in a herd the only ones with a different view are those on the outside.  All the rest just keep their eye on the rear-end in front of them for cues.

    Transform is my one word for 2012 and Romans 12:2 is my scripture. It is very scary but that only leads me to lean on God and his word more and more! Plus the excitement of what lies ahead by God’s plan for my life far outweighs the scary, Just Keep On Looking Ahead!!

    Love your more frequent post! Always look for them and am always blessed by them! Keep it up!
