"Your Word Is Who You Are"

What makes us each a person and defines us - who we are? Is it our profession or our make and year of car? Is it education, our degree, or lack of same? How we play the market, what we lose or what we gain? Maybe it's the neighborhood or where we went to school That helps us up the ladder of success to corporate rule. Could it be the "right clothes", or the people whom we meet? Or maybe it's just luck for living on the "perfect" street. When you think of God, do you compare Him to yourself? What makes Him so powerful, the symbol of true "health"? Think about your weaknesses and ponder them at length, Then compare them with our Father, and discover what is strength. Do you honor covenants and agreements that you make? When you make an error, do you admit the mistake? Do you promise something that you know you cannot do, Finding fault in others for the weaknesses in you? Do you take exception to some things you know are right, To justify you own views when their error's brought to light? Where do you find safety in the constant, raging storm? Is your trust in "arms of flesh", no matter "whose" the form? One thing you will notice - God's consistent, always just. In all things He is perfect.  He inspires total trust. Here's the "Key" to Godhood and a truth to take you far: You'll become like Father when your word is who you are!
