There’s an old Jewish tradition that God sends each of us into the world with a special message to deliver and a special act of love to bestow, and each of us is uniquely equipped to do it; which is why comparing ourselves with others is pointless, as well as futile. Best selling author John Powell talks about a special piece of God’s truth being put into our hands. That special piece of God’s truth is who we are at the very core of our being, energised by God’s own spirit.
Sadly, many of us never get to see it because we are encrusted with so many layers of self doubt or self delusion. There are few things more important than looking again for the person God created us to be and asking Him to help us become it. So, as the Bible says, “Put on your new self; the one being renewed in the image of its creator.”
