And if you greet only your brothers, what are you doing out of the ordinary?
Matthew 5:47 (HCSB)
We all want to be out of the ordinary. Jesus called us to be out of the ordinary, in the world but not of it. Interestingly, being countercultural has become very popular, sometimes in good ways, sometimes in not-so-good ways. Of course, if you’re acting counter-culturally with a heart for the Lord, it’s going to be very good.
