Daring to be different, to be unique, to stand against the norm is costly and it is difficult. By not going with the flow, those who are different, cause others to consider their own views, their own way of doing things, themselves. That leads to fear and fear leads to anger often. By standing apart, you could be seen as standing in the way.
But we are called to be different, called to stand in the way of the normality. We are called to look at what is being done and see it by love….is this action, the action of love? Will the outcome of this action be a demonstration of love?
