So, Who Am I?

I've been thinking. I suspect that a lot of this comes off the back of the Vision and Commitment Sunday meeting last week. As part of the day we were encouraged to have a clear vision of who you are.

So, who am I?

Not just "who do I think I am"...

Who I really am.

The words of Robert Burns spring to mind:
"O wad some power the giftie gie us to see oursels as others see us."
(O would some power the gift to give us to see ourselves as others see us.)

Hi Colin,

Why does the Church keep questioning our capacity to know ourselves? Why does it not like who we are? Aarrgh!

'Unless ye become as little children' has several meanings. One of them is that during our childhood we are - to some extent - our real selves.

I know who I was - and am. And I long to live that out, not merely for self gratification, rather, so that the truth will be seen and magnified and, moreover, so that the greater Truth will be seen and praised.

Good Wishes.

The Artful Dodger.
