From conception, we as individuals were preordained to become replicas of our parents or guardians, if you will. At birth, we have no control over what we wore, what we were fed, our location, our parents, our siblings, or what place we hold in the family. Similarly, when we are slowly exposed to the rest of the world, our surroundings dictate how we are to act in public, etc. We are told by our parents whom we were to associate with, in fairness, mostly for our own good and well-being.
God has created us equally but differently. He holds the power to give each of us some minuscule differences to distinguish ourselves from the next person. Even identical twins have differences. God's purpose for our lives is to individually love Him and develop a close relationship with Him. So why would we ever even think and do as others think and do?
We each have accountability at the end of our lives. When that time comes, we cannot reason with God how we acted and did certain things based on what so and so did. We are as individual in our brains and in our hearts because God purposely created us in that way.
Look at this woman with a goose on her head. She doesn't care what others see in her whether they think she is weird, crazy, or just plain odd. She is my subject because she mirrors who I am. I conform to God's examples, being myself and pleasing only Him. After all, every one else is human just like me, so why would I even want to please a fellow human being rather than God? Something to think about, eh?
Until my next rant... LOVE ONE ANOTHER!
