Are you with the “IN” crowd or are you an “Outcast”? This is a situation many of us face every day of our lives. Being an outcast is no fun, including the pain, hurt feelings, and shame that goes along with it. Rejoice! God is here for ALL of us!!!
God doesn’t see “Outcast”; he sees All of his children. Celebrate who you are. Celebrate what makes you an individual! He didn’t make us to be the same. What a boring world that would be. We were made with our own looks, personalities and talents for a reason. It takes all of us to make the world go around. Stay in Faith and be assured you are exactly how God created you. He loves us ALL and forgives us ALL.
Why do we shun those not like us? All black sheep can become the saving lamb at some time. We are all “Outcasts” in given situations. Some days and some places there will be times that we do not “fit”. Think about WWJD, “What would Jesus do”? Would he shun some and not others? It’s hard to think he would, when we are all his children. To God, there are no outcasts. He gives us courage to reach out to the outcasts so that everyone feels they belong. Remember, God loves us all, outcasts and sinners.
