Many of us feel the need to fit in with the crowd instead of standing out from the crowd. So why is it so important for us to fit in and be accepted? I think it is because we all want to belong to something. We want to feel chosen. Have you ever been at gym class and the teacher would pick two guys as team captains, and the team captains would choose people from the group to be on their team? And there was always someone who would be the last person to be picked because maybe they weren't as fast or they couldn't play as well or whatever. Well, no one ever wants to have that feeling of not being as good as everyone else and being that last guy chosen.

But if you are smart, you will eventually realize that there is no way to please the world, so why are you even trying? No matter what you do, there is going to be someone who wants to put you down. If you are really smart, they will say you think you know it all. If you are good looking, someone is going to say that you are stuck up or conceited. If you are really thin or really heavy, someone will call you an unflattering nickname. And if you talk too much about God, they will say, "Oh, so now you're holier than thou."

But If you call yourself a follower of Christ, you are not supposed to even care what is going on with everybody else, let alone try to go along with it. 1 John 2:15-17 tells us, "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever."
