"Who do people say you are??" Have you seen that game on Facebook where you write one word to describe a person and post the first gif which comes up? It's pretty telling. People are seeing what others think of them. Now here's the second question..."What do you WISH people said about you?"
I asked these questions in Sunday School before I taught on Judges. And then we looked at what God said about each judge.
Othniel--went to war
Ehud--left-handed judge who killed a king
Deborah--judge, prophetess, liberator, carried the presence of God, led army to victory
Gideon--mighty warrior, led people into idolatry
Tola--judge, defender of Israel
And the list goes on and on...
If your life was reduced to one or two words, what would it be? Would you be remembered as a warrior? A good mother? A businessman? A sports addict?
What do you WANT your legacy to be?
Now...are you pointed towards that target? Or do you need to adjust your aim?
