We all have idiosyncrasies, quirks, and unconventional behaviors. In fact, some of us are just weird.
I used to think that I was normal and others were the weird ones, but I’ve come to realize that normal is a relative term. There really isn’t a “normal” when it comes to people. But our differences are something to celebrate. The fact that you like mushrooms and I can’t stand them is interesting. The idea that I could watch football all day and you haven’t watched a game in years, means we have different personalities. You may have different tastes in foods, fashion, or music than most people. That is a good thing.
Be grateful for the quirks and characteristics that make you the person you are. God made a variety of personalities. On top of that, if you add our distinctive experiences and talents, the variations become limitless. The world is a better place because of your uniqueness. We should be thankful for our weirdness, the weirdness of others, and all the wierdos we know.
The Bible says that Christians in general are to be a “peculiar” people. This means we will be different than the mainstream of culture. We should be loving, forgiving, holy people. Christians may not always live up to that goal, but God obviously wants us to be different. It isn’t a bad thing for others to consider us weird. In fact, it may be one of the best compliments you could receive.
The bad news, you are weird.
The good news, everybody should be.
The great news, God loves everyone of us.
Be thankful for who you are, the weirdness and all.
