The why are you here is more important than the how you are here. The how you are here should grow out of your understanding of the why you are here. The why you are here has to do with identity; the how has to do with performance. The why you are here should be rooted in the character of the one who made it possible for you to be here. If you are secure in your identity as a Child of God, then the need to out-perform everyone else in the incessant search for approval and acceptance ceases. That need is born out of our insecurities and our fear that we are not good enough. The Good News is that we cannot earn our standing as a child of God. Our performance or lack there of cannot make God love you any more or care any less. We are who we are! This is why we are here.
