Since we have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, each of us is to exercise them accordingly.
While actors, models and talent for Christ are team players, each person is unique.
Every child on earth of the Most High God is 'Fearfully and wonderfully made' (Psalm 139:14), a creation like no other (ever), a precious fingerprint from God's Own Hand... with both spiritual and worldly gifts.*
To join the entertainment industry, a rising star must embrace uniqueness.
Look like no other. Act like no other. In SAG, your name can be like no other. Never copy anyone else's style--except Jesus. Love yourself as you are.
Don't look like your school crowd... or any crowd. Instead, lead them, as God calls you to do.
Let your curly hair rock and roll- big time. Let your straight hair hang like it wants- sleek time.
Embrace the fierce beauty of your childhood--long before you cared about 'fitting in.'
Don't shop for a new face. Yours is perfect. Keep an eye on style--then make it your own.
Once you step back in your personal brand, be versatile; media demands it.
Hang with cool people different from you- and appreciate their own uniqueness. 'Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep' (Romans 12:15).
Your compassionate inclusivity will help you become a better person, performer and ambassador for Christ..
## Model Conduct 2021: Be Unique (Part 4)
NOTE: This is a 2021 edit of a 2011 Shine Devotion series, Model Conduct. You may see notes to 'Actors, Models & Talent for Christ.' If you think you're not in show business, think again. Shakespeare said, 'All the world's a stage and all its men and women merely players.' Mostly true. But you're not 'merely players.' You are messengers and ambassadors for the King of kings.
* Remember that a gift is also a talent. In biblical times, a 'talent' was a measure of gold equivalent to 75 U.S. pounds. At $1000 per ounce, that is $1,200,000.00. Today, the word, 'talent' describes God's investment of His gifts within us. What will we give back to Him?
