On identity.

Oftentimes I feel the urge to be outgoing and extroverted with others. I think I’m not the only one who feels pressure in social situations to act a certain way or be a certain type of person. In my opinion, this is usually not a healthy impulse. I think it is always better to embrace my natural personality and explore how I can honestly contribute. What I have to offer is always better than what others want me to have to offer (if they’re different).

As a rule, I ask myself “does this serve the kingdom of heaven?” It’s not always a definitive yes or no, but the answer is usually more one than the other. Life is best when I am serving the good pleasure of my King and His Kingdom (c.f. Matt 6:33 and Luke 12:31 – I’ll comment on the “Prosperity Gospel,” which is not what I’m espousing, in a later post).

Your thoughts?
