ALL that we are, is defined by ALL we are not.
Not our skin color
Not our clothing choice.
Not our religion
Not our education level
Not our hair color
Not our nail length
Not our vehicle, house size, or bank accounts
Not the amount we spend at Christmas
or the amount we tithe in church.
Not where we meet for lunch dates,
or the yoga class every Thursday afternoon
We are not the purse we carry
The Jordens we wear.
How many touchdowns we made in the game
How often we donate to Goodwill
What level of education we achieve
How many trophies we earn
What if any smart phone we carry
If we read the news digitally or at the table, with coffee.
We are NONE of that… because at the end of our time here, we are defined by the quality of our character and kindness of our actions. That’s how we are remembered.
