Someone once said that there’s no such thing as normal—what I think is normal might be weird to someone else, and another person’s normal might seem totally bizarre to me. God didn’t make us to be clones, so why do we try so hard to be like everyone else?

Look around—everyone is different, no matter how hard we try to be the same. Some people are tall, some short, skin, hair, and eye colors vary, even identical twins are slightly different. That’s all good! God made every person in history unique, and He loves each of us as if we were the only person on the planet.

How different are we? On planet earth there are: 5 major races, 9,000 distinct ethnic groups, 432 major people groups.
