You will remember the Christmas classic, Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer.
And Herbie the elf.
Herbie, if you will recall, was different than the other elves.
Where the other elves all looked exactly alike, and like robots talked alike and worked alike, Herbie was a misfit among them.
Because Herbie wanted to be a dentist.
Herbie’s dream of being a dentist made him a miserable elf.
In fact, he was not very good as an elf at all.
Because he WAS SUPPOSED to be a dentist.
Remember this scene?
What makes you a misfit among other people?
What keeps you from wanting to be just another clone of everybody else?
What talents do you already possess?
What dreams are you barely containing within you when others are around?
You want to scream, when you hear someone say, “Why can’t you just be like everyone else?”
Be who you are.
Be who you were made to be.
Some may call you a misfit.
God calls you unique, special and meant to stand out.
“It is God who has made us what we are…” Ephesians 2: 10 (TLB)
