John 14:17 “Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.” (Underlining added)
We’re individuals. That’s how Yahuah made us. Our society says we should all be individuals, but then they make a million shirts that say “I’m an individual!!”. If you wear it, you’ve joined 999,999 other people wearing the exact same shirt.. Hmmm.. What gives?
In the Bible, we find some interesting thoughts. Wives are to submit to their husbands. Ephesians 5:22 “Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto [YHWH].”
Collossians 3:18 “Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in [YHWH].” But husbands and wives are a pair- women have some power over their husband’s bodies, even! 1Corinthians 7:3,4 “Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband. The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife.” Another interesting thought; 1Timothy 2:13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve. (Please look up context/s.)
So, it seems, there is a family tie. You obviously have your own ideas. But you need to consider the other people in your life; how will this choice affect them? We are created separately for a reason. YHWH made us different. But He also made us to work together, and to submit to authority.
I don’t think the following is a good show of individuality. We don’t need to stop following our heavenly Father to be individuals! We can be alike in good ways and yet different in our own ways!!
So, just be you. Pay attention to other’s thoughts, but remember it’s Yahuah who has the final word. Remember, Messiah Yahusha promised to be in us. Let Him shine in your way!
