Our world seems set on putting people in boxes and making them feel like outsiders if they want to color outside the lines even a little. I think our kids are increasingly feeling the pressure to be what everyone else expects.
But I don’t think God wants us to walk in formula. He made us each individual with particular thoughts and talents. Sometimes, like Vincent, it seems like those thoughts and talents are appreciated, but I think we can all agree that the world would be missing something if Vincent had given in to the outward pressures and become what everyone else wanted him to be.
