An even better quote!
Tolerably early in life I discovered that one of the unpardonable sins, in the eyes of most people, is for a man to presume to go about unlabelled. The world regards such a person as the police do an unmuzzled dog, not under proper control. -Thomas Henry Huxley, biologist and writer (1825-1895)
Isn’t that just SO true? It must be a universal human trait to try to pigeonhole people, to stick them into their proper slot, to file them according to parentage, race, religion, etc. When someone doesn’t fit our categories, we find it irksome. I have always fought to be free from stereotypes, to be one of the Unlabeled, but people keep trying to stick me back in the box! Anyone else feel this way?
As Christians, wouldn’t it be nice if that could be our ONLY label?
