After God Made You, He Broke the Mold


Bible Reading: Psalm 139:1-20


Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! - Psalm 139:14. 


Crosby was spooked. Minding her own business walking through the mall in her hometown, suddenly she saw her twin sister.


That wouldn't be so weird if Crosby had a twin sister.


Crosby's head spun. Maybe she and this look-alike girl had been separated at birth. Or maybe Crosby's parents had secretly cloned her. Or maybe a freak mutation had produced a girl who looked amazingly like her.


All right, all right. That was all made up! Truth is, you'll live your whole life and never run into anyone who matches you perfectly-inch for inch, pound for pound, nose to nose, ear to ear, hair to hair. Even "identical" twins display physical differ­ences. And even if your outsides happen to look similar to someone else, no one can even begin to describe the differences on your insides. We have an obvious variety built into our brain. Our background creates even bigger differences. All of those things add up to make each of us a wildly unique person.


When it came to making you, God crafted you to be one-of-a-kind. Of the bil­lions of people alive right now on Planet Earth, no one is just like you. You fill a place in God's perfect design. You might not know all the details of why God de­signed you exactly the way he did. But he knows. Even before you were born, he had every moment of your life already laid out.


Maybe you're brainy and wish you were good at sports instead. Or maybe you're quiet and would prefer to be the life of the party. Yet every quality has something valuable about it. So don't waste your life wishing you had someone else's hair, body, talents, or abilities. Every minute you focus on becoming someone else is time you're missing out on being you.


God is overjoyed by variety. So there's no way we should expect him to make people all alike. His love for our differences shows in the way he created us. Tall, short, fat, skinny. People who need glasses. People who like to grow beards. Brown eyes, blue eyes. People of all different skin tones and hair colors. God made them all.


God has given you special personality qualities and skills-things that make you you! Only when you appreciate those traits will you develop them to the fullest. And only when you put to use all the gifts God has given you will you be everything God planned for you to be!


TALK: Think of the special qualities that God has given each member of your family. How can you each use those gifts to serve him?


ACT: Show your appreciation for each family member's uniqueness today.


PRAYER: "Our Loving and Living Father in Heaven, help us to value the unique qualities you have given each member of our family. Thank you for making me according to your will and wish, help me to understand know the purpose of your creation and live to gloryfy your name. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."


Have a Blessed Thursday and God Bless you.
