Here's another interesting little story. When a group of people were selling eco-friendly bags here, one actually called out "You'll be the coolest kid in town!"
Is that a good enough reason to buy one? I've never really wanted to be that popular. The things the so-called "cool" kids around here wear and have seem a bit over the top sometimes. And to support this, here is a quote from iwise.com:
"I want to be different, like everybody else I want to be like. I want to be just like all the different people. I have no further interest in being the same because I have seen difference all round and now I know that's what I want. I don't want to blend in and be indistinguishable. I want to be part of the different crowd and and assert my individuality along with others who are different like me."
What does God say about this? To look at Romans 12:2, we are told to "Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind."
In a previous post, I mentioned Philippians 2:14-15, as it has the words "shine like stars", which I have a bracelet with that on. God's view of "the coolest kid in town" is different to that of the world's. So let's be the coolest kid in town, in God's eyes!
On another topic, on the query in the last post about the Iceland volcano, that's in the comments on said post. And the funny story about that, for you people not in this area, there was a group of scientists from somewhere in the UK stranded in Norway and they got on a ship headed for Orkney. But they are now stranded in Orkney as the regular boat for here passed them headed for Norway!
