What is your Defining Story?

All of us travel with at least one story that draws us and defines us. Commercials do nothing more than entice us to adopt their story – “You’re a winner, a cut above the rest (of the losers)” or “You need help and we have it” or “Your looks are the real you – better spruce up a bit” or “All you suffer from is not being either hip enough or productive enough (okay, maybe pretty or manly enough as well,)” or “Life would be perfect if you only had this.”

These stories divide the world into two categories – winners and losers. If you are a winner, you might be a loser tomorrow. Don’t let up. If you are a loser, we could make you a winner (only to lose again later.)

Christianity has so much baggage (which makes me sad) but has a great story. That is: You are loved and there is not a thing you can do about it.

Try this story on today and skip the others. Write everyone you meet today into this story.
