How we define ourselves and with whom we identify say everything.

We live in a culture that is obsessed with external affiliations and associations that have little to do with the heart or core of a person.

The number of “friends,” “followers,” “likes,” etc. is merely a superficial measure which carries no real value in life.

Where we live, which schools we attended, and the size of our investment portfolios are all fleeting distinctions of this temporal life we’ve been given here on earth.

What really matters are our intrinsic values — humility, generosity, justice, compassion.

What truly defines a person has more to do with how we relate to our neighbors — whether we care to invest in or share in the lives of others.

“Who we say we are” should reveal the true identities we derive from the One true giver of life — the One source of life, peace, and prosperity.
