God does Different Things with Different People

John the Baptist came neither eating or drinking and you say, 'He has a demon.' 

Jesus came eating and drinking and you say 'Look a glutton and winebibber, a friend of tax collectors and sinners' . (Luke 7:33-34)  

These Bible verses teach us the following lessons:
1. God does things differently using different people 
For example John's ministry was characterized fasting while that of Jesus involved eating.

Therefore, fulfill your purpose and do the things God has called you to do the way He has called you to do. Do not look at how others are doing it because you may have been sent to a different demographic. 

If you do not know how God wants you to fulfill your purpose, pray and ask Him.

2. Just do it because you will be criticized anyway
Focus on doing what God has called you to do and do not waste your energy trying to avoid criticism because you will be criticized anyway for we can see that John was vilified for fasting and Jesus for feasting.
My thoughts are not your thoughts and your ways are not My ways says the Lord Isaiah 55:8
