“The reason they want you to fit in…

Posted on

is that once you do, then they can ignore you.” – Seth Godin, November 18, 2009

Seth Godin is talking about marketing, but how much more true is this for non-Christians? Once we Christians “fit in,” that is, as we stop looking and acting differently from non-Christians, we are so easily ignored.

Why wasn’t Jesus ignored? He didn’t fit in.

 

Lord Jesus, don’t let me fit in with the people around me. Make me stand out because you’re moving in my life and making me more like you. Give me the words to say when people ask why I’m not the same as they are, why I don’t do the things they do, why I don’t talk like they talk. Use me to cover those around me with yourself.
