Last week, I decided to announce to my readers that I am transitioning to a vegan diet. Talk about choosing to be different! I've learned that in life being different isn't bad at all. Though hard to walk against the grain, it is worthwhile.
God calls us to be the salt of the earth. In the most basic sense, salt is used as a flavoring. Ultimately, it's intent is to contrast what it is flavoring. So if you're going to be salt to the world, you must contrast the world. You must choose to be different; to be set apart.
