“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”
Romans 12:2 ESV
Being odd can be the best possibility when you are in step with The Spirit. Often people are bullied and chastised for being different, even when they are doing the right thing. Seeing the painting of the platypus (http://www.sincerelysarahstudios.com ) reminded me how beautiful oddity can be. We need to encourage others to be who God has made them to be, even if that seems odd. Trying to be different to please others or because of societal pressures is not an excuse to be odd however.
