Can I Be Honest?


I tend to take credit for the things I do well and blame God for my weaknesses (he could have tweaked my DNA in the better direction, right?).

Romans 12:3 (NIV)
Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought.


Thinking too highly of myself? Honestly, Lord, yes.bless-honest

  1. Lately I’ve gone in the other direction – questioning the quality and worth of everything I do. (To be honest, there are those around me – not in the blog community – who question my worth as well).

    It’s hard to strike a balance. We’re supposed to put on Christ, and doing that requires individuality and ego – we aren’t expected to be faceless, characterless clones. Jesus is a strikingly unique individual – as C.S. Lewis said, people loved Him or hated Him. There’s no record of anyone expressing mild approval.

  2. Shirlee Abbott says:

    God is truth, and our enemy is a liar. Our Creator shaped us, and putting on Christ doesn’t do away with the unique qualities God placed in each of us.

    God never questions our worth. I think you can safely disregard anyone who questions your worth–that would be one of the enemy’s lies. You are a unique voice in our world, Andrew, one that many people would rather not hear. Keep at your message until God says otherwise.
