“Who are you?!” sings Roger Daltry of The Who. It’s a good question to ask yourself every now and then. When you find the song going through your head, or hear it on the radio, answer the question. Life is asking you to contemplate and remember who you really are.
You play many roles in life, and to different people you may seem to be a different person. Sometimes you can get so caught up in the busy-ness of life that you never stop to look in the mirror and ask, “Who are you?” You might even go through most of your life without ever really grappling with this question. Are you who your parents or peers told you to be? Are you your abilities, or disabilities? Are you your job, or your position within the community? Or are you the vision and values that drew you into this world and ask you to serve them? Are you your destiny and the dream planted in your heart by God?
“Oh I really want to know,” screams Roger Daltry, “c’mon tell me who are you, you, you, you, youooo!” The question reverberates through your mind and settles in your heart. Who are you? Who are you going to be? Your future depends on your answer.
