who are you

Have you ever noticed on some peoples Facebook or Twitter accounts that they make an attempt to describe themselves in a short statement? For example,  my Twitter account reads, “I love many things – my wife, my kids, my church (Trinity), Starbucks coffee, and last but certainly not least, Football!” After looking at several others accounts, I started to feel a little self-conscious.  Mine seemed to read a little shallow, a little boring and not very creative. I mean, I didn’t have anything in there about Jesus, what I do for a living, or something profound. From reading my headline, one could actually judge me as being selfish and self exhorted (as there are three “my’s” in there.)
 
The reality is that I am so much more than what I post on my Twitter account. To find out more and get to know who I am, you would have to spend time with me and talk with me. I guess what I am trying to get at is that we cant know anyone by a Twitter description or a sound bite. However, it seems in our fast paced world of social media, we draw a lot of conclusions about who people are, and most likely those conclusions are either wrong or shallow.
 
Let’s not settle for Twitter descriptions of people. Don’t compare yourself to other peoples Facebook accounts. You are more than a sum of a few words. God has (and is crafting) your identity. 

“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” Psalm 139:14.
