Over the years I have attended many graduation ceremonies. and like all of these events a couple of the students came to the podium and shared what the last years in study have meant. As is common with all of these ceremonies a guest speaker is asked to attend and share something meaningful from his/her life with the graduating class. This recent ceremony was no exception. What the guest speaker shared from his own life was, to say the least very moving. In summary, he declared from his position as a lead pediatric physician, how that he was able to analyze and quickly summarize what was going on with his patients. What really changed his life as a physician was a mother. As was his custom he would tour the children's ward at the hospital with several other attending physicians, describing in great detail the child in the bed with medical terms; i.e. laceration, broken leg, infections, burns, etc. It was on one occasion that the mother of a child that he was describing turned to him and said “You have described what Jeffrey has yet you have not described who he is. That's my son Jeffrey”. That single invent began a dramatic change in this doctors life. Now here's the question, when you look in the mirror do you see what you are (lawyer, preacher, teacher, etc.) or who you are? Question, does God see you as what you are or who you are? Are you a what, merchant, baker, candlestick maker, or are you (insert your name) who is a child of God? “But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God” John 1:12 English Standard Version (ESV) If you want to discover how to be a be a who in God’s family let’s talk - Pastor Roger firstname.lastname@example.org.
