Where will your kids find their identity...who they are?
In having a mum or dad? In your love for them?
In having a family to share laughs, hurts, the mundane and the exceptional?
In the home you provide for them? In the way their siblings treat them?
In their achievements at school or sport? In the career they choose?
In the ministry they serve in?
If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these, you should see the Kendrick Brother’s latest film, Overcomer.
Here's my reflections and review
Many of us don’t realise it but we place our value in the roles we have, like being a mum or dad, the work we do, the accomplishments we make, the rapport we have, the recognition we’ve gained. It can creep up on us and shock us when something that defines us is swept away. We are left reeling and wondering ‘who am I now?’
Sometimes our value can come from lack of achievement…we feel worthless because we haven’t achieved. We set out to sail the seven seas but barely got out of the harbor before every boat we built sank.
If you lose a parent…you might ask the same question in a different way…’who am I now I don’t have a dad?’
