God Makes Everyone Unique

I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. (Psalm 139:14)

Sally sat in the front seat of the car watching the snowflakes fall on the car windshield. "Wow! Look at that one, Mom! Isn't it beautiful? Look at all those little tiny lines!" Sally couldn't stop watching the snowflakes. She kept pointing out her favorites.

"Sally, did you notice that none of these snowflakes are the same? Every design you'll see is different from the others. God makes each one unique – each one is one of a kind."

Mom challenged Sally to find any two that were alike. Sally couldn't do it!

Sally sat back and thought hard for a little while. She looked at the mounds of snow that had fallen during the night. Almost two inches had fallen overnight, and Sally realized that it took a LOT of snowflakes to make even one small mound of snow! Mom said that each one was different. Wow! That was awesome to think about. Our God is so awesome that He made each snowflake – and there are no two snowflakes alike.

Sally could hardly pull her eyes away from the mounds of DIFFERENT snowflakes, but Mom was talking again: "Sally, do you realize that just as God made each snowflake unique and special, He also makes each person unique and special? Even identical twins are different in many ways. Each person can show God's glory in a different way from his brothers or sisters or parents or friends. Our differences show God's creativity and wisdom. To bring glory to God, you do not have to be just like your brother Jim, or like me, or like Dad. God made you special so that you'll bring Him glory in a way that no one else can."

God cared enough to make each of us uniquely different from everyone else.

My Response:
» What are some ways God made me unique (special) or different from my brother, sister, or friends?
» Did God make any two things exactly the same?
» Do I praise God for making me unique?






Truth In Real Life


Description of God

A High Priest forever after the order of Melchizedek
Hebrews 6:20 – "Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek."

 

Question & Answer

QCan I ever take any credit or glory for becoming more and more like Jesus Christ?

ANo; never! Taking credit that is due to God alone is an awful sin that resembles the attitude that Jesus despised the most – the self-righteousness of the Pharisees. Luke 17:10 – "So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, 'We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do.'"

 

BIG Christian Word

Antichrist - (an'ti-krist)

An antichrist is an enemy and disbeliever of Christ. The antichrist is to spread universal evil before the end of the world but finally will be conquered at Christ's second coming. The word "antichrist" is also used to describe other people who have the same opposition to Christ. (I John 2:22) "Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son."
