I was talking to Zeke the other day about one of his favorite things in the world – Monkeys. He taught me a few things. I learned that there are three varieties of primates: apes, gorillas, and monkeys.
They are differentiated this way; Gorillas are just huge. Apes do not have a tail. Monkeys have tails.
Within the three classifications there are literally hundreds of varieties. Mountain Gorillas and Golden Lion Tamarins. Chimpanzee’s and proboscis monkeys. Literally hundreds of varieties.
What is cool is that God created each one. Maybe just because he likes variety.
Do you know what else is cool? Although there is one class of people – Homo sapiens, there are literally 7 billion kinds! Each human is different and unique.
Let’s bring that closer to home for a minute. You are made unique. No one else is like you. You are the only you on planet earth. There are more different types of humans than there are varieties of monkeys. Yes sir (or ma’am) you are one special person.
And God made you that way.
One of a kind.
So here is what I’d like you to do this week.
Work hard at being you.
No one else.
Be the you God created you to be.
Don’t try to fit in by adapting to those around you.
Don’t try to be like that person you look up too.
You are unique.
You are special.
You are awesome.
Be you.Rob Link Lead Pastor
