#090: Power Play – Don’t follow the crowd

“Following the crowd is not a winning approach to life.  In the end it’s a loser’s game, because we never become who God created us to be by trying to be like everybody else.”  – Tim Tebow

God created you to be different.  He created everyone to be unique, but it’s a lot easier to take the safe route and follow everyone else than carve out your own path.  It might be ‘normal’ to drink at a party, to join in and talk about someone behind their back, to follow a certain path, but if it’s just not ‘you’ or doesn’t fit with your values, you’re denying your true self and instead settling for mediocrity.  It isn’t always easy to be different, but that’s when you find out who God created you to be.

“Don’t change so people will like you.  Be yourself, and the right people will love the real you.” – Marc and Angel (Marc and Angel Hack Life)

Game Plan:  Read Romans 12:1-8 and think about how you can follow God’s plan rather than the opinions and actions of other people.  It may mean having a planned response when you feel the pressure to fit in, or avoiding situations where you feel that pressure.
