Get to Know Yourself

November 04, 2011

“I want to know Christ and experience the mighty power that raised him from the dead. I want to suffer with him, sharing in his death,” – Philippians 3:10

The person we spend the most time with is our self, so we tend to be pretty interested in our own lives. I ask you: Do you really like yourself? Would you rather be somebody else? Are you realistic about your strengths and weaknesses?

Socrates gets credit for saying, “Know thyself,” even though what he really said, was, “the unexamined life is not worth living.” Either way, the message is clear. Knowing ourselves is a key to a meaningful life.

Let me go a step further. Since God is your Creator and He knows you better than anyone, why don’t you get to know God personally? Then you’ll get to know yourself–the real you–better than you ever could on your own. God gives us the way to know Him through Jesus and His Word. If you get to know Him, you’ll come to know yourself and why you’re here. You’ll be on the road to a very meaningful life.
