Unique vs. Useful

Okay so I ran across this poster today and my initial thought was "How true!" and I had a good laugh. But the more I thought about it I realized it's actually quite negative. I don't know if that fork is so unique as it is garbage. I mean it's not different from the other ones...it's just bent way out of shape. It got me thinking how useless we can be when we are "bent out of shape" or something is not quite right in our spirits

I like to think I am unique, even though I know there are probably lots of others out there like me, so I am probably not as unique as I thought. But more important I want to be useful, so that is what I strive for whether that makes me different or the same as others I don't really care....

What do you think??

Anon,
One thing I know for sure...I am not a fork.

Some call me unique others call me other things... I know that round is a shape so I guess I am shapped... dont know if I am bent out though.

Anyone else want to have a go at me? This could be fun!

Wow, the Anons should just get together and start their own blog. I hate all that negativity that's being posted by Anons. Not all Anons ofcourse, just some.

Anyhoo, I agree with your post. As long as we're striving to be more like Jesus and less like ourselves, He'll shine through us in a unique way.

I understand that unique means unusual or special in some way & that is usually linked with positive things. So I totally agree with you! It makes me sad nowadays to see people trying so hard to be so specific and different that the end result is a disaster, sometimes disgusting or embarrassing. (and that is reflected in art, music….etc.)

I think anon was just being witty about the pic -not necessarily about Gabe.

And uniqueness is a luxury of the teenage years. Afterwards you just have to be practical, and if you can pull off unique while ur at it...
