Have you ever asked yourself the question, “Who am I?” What are the things that most define my personal identity? What are my talents, passions, and strengths? In this podcast, Tony discusses who you really are.
Scripture: But you are “a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people of his own, so that you may announce the praises” of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. –1 Peter 2:9
For we are his handiwork, created in Christ Jesus for the good works that God has prepared in advance, that we should live in them. –Ephesians 2:10
Exercise: Here is an exercise to try.
1. Make a list of all the things that define you both externally and internally.
2. Eliminate anything that is negative from your list.
3. Scratch off the list those external things that might change in the future.
4. Look at what is left and ask the question, “What remains on my list that really defines me?”
Reflection: Have you tried Tony’s idea on discovering the real you? Do you like hat person better than the one you portray? What can you do to live the person you really are?
