Tuesday July 9th, Galatians 6:  4-5 Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that. Don't be impressed with yourself. Don't compare yourself with others. Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life. One of the tasks the confirmation class goes through before being confirmed is to write their own mission statement.  I use the material in “The Path” by Laura Beth Jones.  If you haven’t looked into it, do so, it is good stuff.  If we are each focusing on who God has called us to be and what we are called to do as a child of God in the creation, we, as well as those around us, will be happier.  Very few adults have their own mission statement.  For them it is getting by for today as best you can that seems to rule.  One thing to remember is that each and every one of us lives according to a mission statement, written or unwritten.  God calls us to live our mission as a child of God however, not just a cog in the wheel of someone else’s mission in life, but as a called and blessed child of God.  If you don’t know what your mission is, get a copy of “the Path” and get started writing, then get started living.
