Sometimes you defy social and seasonal norms by wearing a wraparound skirt (definitely summer wear) with shiny zebra print flats. It’s the combination of a lifetime, and you discover that the wraparound really limits your movement when you walk. But the Bible says to not conform to the patterns of this world, so you wear bright green with zebra on a snowy day.
Or maybe that wasn’t what that verse was talking about. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by wearing a green wraparound skirt with non-matching shoes in January. Yeah, it doesn’t really sound familiar.
Today’s a more appropriate day for sweatpants. And some days you have to sacrifice a little bit of individuality for warmth. So you only make it through half of the day with the colorful stuff on. Then you get cold and change.
It doesn’t mean you’re not unique. It just means you get cold, just like everyone else.
Maybe I need to look more closely at Romans 12.
