LESSONS FROM DAISY: PERSONALITY
We have a new puppy at our house. In January we got a female miniature dachshund. We named her Daisy. It has been nearly 20 years since we had a puppy in our home so Daisy has definitely added joy to our lives. After our last dog ó Pebbles ó departed us two years ago, we weren't sure if we wanted another dog or how we would feel about getting another one. But, one Saturday we held a puppy and she became our Daisy.

Thereís one thing about pets -- they all have their unique personality. Since we have had Daisy, we have learned that she is different from all other pets we have had. She hasnít replaced the memories of our other pets but has carved out her own place in our hearts. Her individual traits make her just as adorable.

Don't you think God feels that way about us too? He loves our individual personalities. Religion tries to make us all alike with the thought that God will accept us only one way. Not true. He accepts us when we accept Him as THE way. He loves us the way we are. When we become a believer, we don't lose our individual personality. Salvation refines our personality to be more like Christ but we are still individuals. If we were all the same it would be boring. Instead, God has gifted us all with different talents and abilities. We often like to quote (Genesis 1:26-27) where it says that we were created in Godís image. However, being created in an image doesnít mean we are an exact duplicate copy. An image is something that is based on the original but with the ability to be customized.

Today our world wants to celebrate their diversity apart from God while condoning their sinful lifestyle choices. Although God has allowed us to make individual choices, He still expects us to live a holy life. (Romans 12:1-3) God is tolerant of us but Heís not tolerant of sin. It isnít that He wants to do us harm but that Heís looking out for us. Although Daisy has her own personality, Denise and I must still direct her in many areas for her protection and safety. We are not being intolerant; we just know what is best for her.

It doesnít matter if you canít sing like the soloist or preach like the preacher. God just wants you to be you. You are a created individual with a purpose for Him. Your personality fits into His plan just as Daisy fits into ours.
