A friend said something interesting to me last night. She broke up with a good friend of mine about a month ago so she is in the stage now where she is starting to process what happened without the disappointment. She is also in the stage where she is realizing this isn't just going to be an easy shift back to the friendship which they had before, which granted wasn't very close but they were friends from and at church. That is sometimes the most difficult stage to get through - the stage where you realize you have lost the person, at least for a while. He didn't call her on her birthday and that hurts. I know that feeling. Anyway, she said to me "I have learned a valuable lesson with all of this. I have learned that even when it is a Christian guy, he is still just a guy. It all boils down to that." At that point it became impossible to talk any further about it so I never really got clarification but it definitely left me something to chew on. What is it about "us" that makes us different? Are we doing everything we can and know how to do to be different than others around us?

Now-a-days there doesn't seem to be much to make "Us" different. What ever happened to absolute truth. We justify living like the world and compromise on what scripture tells us. We've twisted scripture to make it what we want it to be. Are we truly set apart anymore?
