the last generation or two, though, is where people are looking for the answer.

For many it's not so much a search to find values and a purpose to base their lives on as a search for an identity, an image, with a heavy emphasis on individuality. I did a quick search on the Internet and found 153,000 sites telling me how I could express my individuality and most of them were selling something.

There were the obvious ways (choice of clothes, hairstyle, music, diet, or car) and the more extreme (tattoos and body-piercings).

Advertisements pitch items as diverse as custom cell phone tones, artisan metal urns, hand drumming, and charity fund givingall as means of expressing individuality. What consumers don't seem to realize is that in their quest for individuality, they end up

models of conformitywalking advertisements that promote other people's ideas, tastes, creativity, and enterprise. What was once a teenage rite of passage now follows us

from cradle to graveliterally! A gift card company says, "You want your birth announcement to express your individuality in a special way." A funeral home says,

"Prearrangement means you can express your individuality in a funeral service." What makes you an individual is not having beliefs that no one else has, but letting your belief in truths

held in common with millions of other believers educate, inspire, motivate, and cause you to do things that are unique. You can become the beautiful individual and unique expression of

God's love that He wants you to be, or you can go the other route and resist His instruction, refuse His help, and miss becoming what you could have been. For more PowerPoint messages visit:
