Be Different, Be Better


Daniel 1:20 And in all matters of wisdom and understanding about which the king examined them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers who were in all his realm.

One trait every young man and woman of God should possess is the desire to be the best. Being average, normal, or like the crowd is a standard the people of God should not accept. In Daniel 1:20, we see an excellent example of young people being above average examples. In fact, these four young men were ten times better than their peers. Whether in academics, athletics, personal behavior, or on the job strive to be the best. Doing so brings glory to God.

Let God’s Word be the measuring stick of excellence in life. Teens and young adults that truly desire to be trendsetters are not comfortable being like the world, they are different. Strive to be better than what is considered normal. With Christ, be a trendsetter.
