In our back yard you can find gray squirrels, blue birds, red birds, black birds and green anole lizards. All but the lizards stay true to their colors. The little lizards try to blend into their surroundings so they will not be attacked by others. As believers, we need to be true to our “colors” even if it means we will be attacked. The world would want us to adapt to our surroundings, to blend in. However, we should remember that we are not to be of this world.
Romans 12:2 (NIV)
2 Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will.
