09/12 Deuteronomy 7:9
6 For you are a holy people, who belong to the Lord your God. Of all the people on earth, the Lord your God has chosen you to be his own special treasure.
7 “The Lord did not set his heart on you and choose you because you were more numerous than other nations, for you were the smallest of all nations!
God sets His people apart, they are different from the world. We are His own and therefore we are called to let Him mold us to become more like Jesus.
