I’ve been thinking about all the various groups that people identify with lately.
So many people consider themselves with one of many different identifications these days. We now see the emergence of White Supremists, Nazis, and dozens of other fringe groups.
But isn’t our identity something that runs much deeper than any group could even contain?
Of course a belief system is something of great importance to us. One can call themselves a Christian, a follower of Jesus, or a child of God. Others identify with other religious norms and wear the badge of that particular system.
Who we really are, is oftentimes hidden from eyes to see a person’s soul or spirit, is something that can’t be touched, nor handled.
We are told that our eyes are the windows to our souls and this is most certainly true. When a person looks into the eyes of another person you can immediately see heartache or joy, or even wisdom. But they are like deep pools that run like underground streams.
We are a people who are so quick to say that we belong to this organization or that one. Many of us live lives where we need these attachments to feel important, or to have a sense of belonging.
We have families and perhaps without them, our singularity would not sustain us because our childhoods and relationships with mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, have helped form us.
But our true sense of belonging and identify can come from our relationship with our heavenly Father. For He knows our deepest needs and secrets. He has formed us and framed us even as the potter has the clay.
