You use a lot of energy when you are hurt deeply, expend an incredible amount of energy when your reputation is impugned and empty your reservoir of energy when you are threatened. Of course, you have to deal with these threats. Often forcefully. But you don’t have to fall into the trap of believing it’s your ability to do so that somehow determines who you are as a person. Your identity is always determined by God who loves you unconditionally, every single moment and regardless of what you do. And it is this reality – and that’s exactly what it is – that enables you to keep everything in your life in perspective; deal with whatever happens; and frees you to invest your energy in more important ways: loving God, cherishing others and living your life in the abundance of God’s grace. So today and everyday, remember whose you are.
