Who are you?
A popular TV show’s theme song says this, “Who, who are you?” My pastor asked this question recently.
What do you say when someone asks, “Who are you?” or “What do you do?”
I can answer with a few different things:
- home school teacher
- blah, blah, blah
But are these descriptions really who I am? Are these adjectives how I want people to think of me? A more important question-is this how God sees me?
Other than Christian, the rest are dependent on other people in my life. My name (a nickname) was given me by my parents. My last name changed when I got married, and wife was added to the mix. Mom came a short time later with the birth of our first child. Teacher came also at this time. It wasn’t a formal teaching position, but I taught my child long before he started learning his 123’s or ABC’s. Writer is a recent addition, but the desire has been growing for a while.
All of these things could easily be stripped from me. They don’t really define WHO I am. They define some of the things I DO.
So who am I? How do I want to be seen by others and by God?
I want to be seen as:
- a helper
- a servant of God
- a child of God
If you come up to me today and ask, I might list some of the things further up, but I think my main answer from now on to the question ‘Who are you?’ will be, “I am a servant of the Most High God.”
