Have you ever felt out of place in a large group of people? We desire to fit in and be accepted. If we sense others consider our appearance or personality unusual we are uncomfortable. We forget that often the most peculiar are highly favored.
“For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works (Titus 2:11-14 KJV).” If you are God’s child, peculiar means special and set apart for service.
