This day and age we are all so worried about what people think of us and how we portray ourselves, that we all forgot about what matters, and that is the character/ personality that makes you, you! No two people in this universe are the exact same, even identical twins, so why is it that we try to equal ourselves to everyone else and idolize all the “perfect people”?
The younger generation has it hard now that social media is a massive part in everyone’s lives, you can follow your favorite athletes, artist even supermodels, but the thing is, you always catch yourself wanting to dress like them, talk like them, or wish you could even be them. Society has our minds thinking we have to fit in and meet a specific image to be “cool” or even relevant.
We have kids thinking because they wear glasses they’re nerds, you have red hair you’re ugly, not a size 0 you’re obese, so on and so forth but really what does that say about social media and the people who decide to criticizes others and knock them down.
The Biggest Bully nowadays is social media, and we have to protect our young ones from thinking they have to fall under a particular category to be special or someone important.
Director Kelly Asbury, well-known director (mostly for his family/kid films like “Shrek 2”, “Smurfs2”, & “Sherlock Gnomes”) is working on restoring the innocence in our children and letting them know it’s okay to be unique, no one is perfect, and you don’t have to be “perfect” to be a wonderful/ impactful individual.
This movie is excellent for parents who want to reinforce the biblical truth to their children. He told The Gospel Herald that “the film is ultimately about inclusion – and embracing those who are different from you, regardless of their appearance.”
“Surely, there is not a righteous man on earth who does good and never sins.” Ecclesiastes 7:20.
Jesus answered. “No one is good—except God alone.”
Mark10:18. In the bible, we are reminded several times that no one is perfect, and we all fall short of the Glory of God. So why are we putting some of these people so high up and make them believe they are better than most? We need to teach our kids and the younger generations that it’s okay to be yourself and love one another for who we are, not what we look like or what we have.
Each person on this planet is special in some way, shape or form, and you have to be the one that finds that within yourself, even though we may not be perfect, the big man upstairs who made us is. And he makes no mistakes!
