At one time or another, don't we all think that the world might be just a little bit better/easier/more satisfying "if only" more people were like us? The unspoken desire behind that thought is for other people to adhere to our expectations. None of us has that option, and it's obvious God never planned it that way. One look at the world around us makes it clear that God loves variety—even if we're not personally very fond of some of it!

I once thought the world would be better if all were more like me, but eventually realized how boring and messed up the world would become if that were true. Any comments or testimonies today?
