Be Who You Are

Be Who You AreWho are you?

  • Sibling
  • Parent
  • Spouse
  • Neighbor
  • Friend

How do you introduce yourself to others when you have only a brief time to do so?

Do you begin with one or more of the above or jump right to sharing your name and your primary professional role?

Human Being

Today, many people spend so much of their time working in a role that they forget they are separate from that role and also more than that role.  Christian filmmaker Phil Cooke recently warned his readers not to find their worth in what they do, but rather in who they are.  Raymond M. Kethledge and Michael S. Irwin speak to the importance of the need to intentionally seek solitude and to use those times to reconnect with one’s authentic self in their new book Lead Yourself First: Inspiring Leadership Through Solitude (Bloomsbury USA, 2017).

So What?

Just like a good preacher is preaching to her/himself just as much as anyone else present, so also am I as a blogger blogging to myself as much as to any of my readers.  After all, my most recent post was an announcement of my new ministry role. Even so, I know this is about more than me.

  • Who are you (apart from any professional roles, titles, and the like)?
  • What is your greatest challenge in living as a human being not just as a human doing?
  • If you are a follower of the Way of Jesus, how does that factor into your answers to the two questions above?
