God does not make average people, only the world does.

While talking to my mentor and my oldest friend, he was telling me about a post he read on Facebook. The post asked “I'm ok with the understanding that I am average”. This broke my heart because we are not average. The Creator of the universe didn't create average people. In the book the Purpose Driven Life, by Rick Warren, he states that we are born by God’s purpose and for his purpose.

In Galatians 5:15 Paul writes “But if you are always biting and devouring one another, watch out! Beware of destroying one another.”

To call someone average we would be calling them insignificant in God’s eyes’.
If we look at people like Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., and Martin Luther we see that at first before they did all their amazing things they were only specks in God’s eye. Robert Frost wrote in the poem The Road not Taken “I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.” Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., and Martin Luther understood the importance about the two roads and knew what the world said and knew what God said. A person after God’s heart is a person that understands righteousness. Should we let the world tell us that we are nothings? People always say to not put all your eggs in one basket, but with God we can give everything to Him. Even if we look at the great king David, he began as a shepherd boy. God had planned him to do great things for Israel. The world does not see the plans God has for the people he created.
