How Do I Fit In?
How many times in life have you and I tried to fit in? If we could be totally honest with ourselves, fitting in has been a place of struggle since learning how to make friends at an early age. You are out there ready to play baseball, and you were the last picked. You signed up for a talent show, and you were 5th place with only 4 contestants!
So one of two things could happen in those moments….. either you shy away from even trying to compete, or you go hard in the yard to prove a point to others that you can become what everyone is. And this is a place where we can lose ourselves if we are not careful.
Life consists of clicks, circles, groups, crowds and trends and all of those things are good to an extent. The cost of pulling or pushing people in of these things can really damage a person whether they make the cut or not. This is why it is imperative to really know who you are and whose you are in order to function in life.
Now I am not saying to be this lone ranger for Christ, but what I am saying is that in order for us to complete the work that we are and were called to do, we must be doing it for the right reasons and wearing the right armor.
The story of David and Goliath is a powerful story, but for this context, it is not about the killing of the giant, it's about David knowing who he was before the physical battle even began!
Read for yourself this story, and let's get our identity in order for Jesus!!
