How is your world different?
Everyone lives in a different world. We all live on earth, but our worlds – the way we interact, the way we live, the way we experience – that’s completely different.
- Maybe you’re like my friend who lives in Indiana in the middle of pretty much nowhere. He walks through a couple acres of woods each day. He “goes into town” to buy groceries. He lives in a different world.
- Maybe you’re like my friend who lives in India. She used to work with kids, but now she works in an office. She skypes fairly often. She loves her sister. She lives in a different world.
- Maybe you’re like my friend who drives a truck across America. It’s normal for him to travel through half a dozen states every couple days. He does this for a living. He drinks tons of coffee and hasn’t cooked his own meal in a long time. He likes pancakes. He lives in a different world.
- Maybe you’re like this guy who moves to a new country every three months. He lives a minimalist lifestyle and works exclusively online, so he’s able to pull this off. He takes requests from his audience – they choose where he moves next. He lives in a different world.
- Maybe you’re like the pastor who left church, left Korea, and moved back to America without a job lined up. He’s married and has one daughter. His extended family has never met his daughter. He lives in a different world.
- Maybe you’re like this other guy I know who goes clubbing every other night in Seoul. He lost his phone a few weeks ago. This means he lost contact with all the girls he used to call, which means he has to start all over. He lives in a different world.
These are real people, not fictional profiles. Most likely, though, you’re not like any of them. You live in a different world.
So how? How is your world different?
