They had to have the right people.
None of us were made in the cookie cutter image. That's right, none. So if any of us are trying to be something we're not, we won't get the things God wants for us. And chances are if we are promoted it won't last long, because we can't fake who we really are for too long. Our authentic genuine selves will creep in when we are not even aware and that promotion would be gone is 60 seconds. I saw this often in corporate America.
Cookie cutters need not apply.
No one wants a copy, people want the real McCoy, the real deal. No need to fake it or act like everyone else. We were made individually by God in His image, so who were are is more than enough. That means the Lord made us all awesome like Him and there is no need to try to be anything different. We were all made beautifully in His eyes.
He is perfection, so how can perfection make junk?
This is all proof that before the Lord formed us in our mothers' womb, He knew us (Jeremiah 1:5) and before we were born He set us apart. He did this for us to make a difference, to help others, and for others to see His light in us. When we shine, the Lord shines. Simple. Another way to put it? It's ok to be ourselves, it's ok to be different, and it's ok to not go with the crowd. This is what great leadership is about. If we're willing to be ourselves and not be concerned about fitting in, then we will make a big splash and a big impact.
