Five minute Fridays are the opportunity to share thoughts and write for five minutes without edits or too much analytical thinking. The prompt today is the word: same.
The same but different…
Like Day and night…
Like the Ocean to the desert…
Like sweet to salty…
Good vs. bad.
Flesh vs. spirit.
As a twin I grew up with comparisons…. A question I am still asked: Are you and your sister the same?
My goodness I know what they mean when they ask… but how silly is that question… are we the same?
Are two drops of rain the same?
Are two flowers the same?
Are two mountains the same?
Are two snowflakes the same?
Are two stars the same?
Same-ness can be flattering such as being Christ-like.
Same-ness can be freeing as we try to relate to others
But oh my how dangerous being the same can be…
I don’t believe God calls any of us to be exactly the same… Yet, we seem to struggle the most when we have differences with one another…
I’m so glad He calls us to fellowship with those who are of the same likeness as Jesus… but when it comes to the ‘same’ that’s where I want to be – the same as Jesus!

I pray your weekend is full of wonderful Christlike sameness... as well as His divinely created differences.
