As a man thnketh, so is He….Proverbs 23:7. ” Who do you think you are, young man?” was a common phrase asked of me as I grew up. Sometimes it was because I was being bad and the phrase became a form of discipline. But other times it came from teachers and mentors trying to motivate to go to the next level. My grandmother and great grandmother always told me I would be the next Thurgood Marshall because I was smart.

What they were doing was to help shape my thinking so that I would learn to reach for greatness, but remain humble in who I was and who I was representing. Well, I didn’t become the next Thurgood Marshall because that was not my dream of God’s purpose for me. But I continue the pursuit of God’s purpose for my life.

So when was the last time you asked yourself, “WHO DO I THINK I AM?” The answer will likely shed light on everything that is happening in your life right now. Are you being the person you want to be or are you living someone else’s dream for you. Are you pursuing your passion? Are you LIVING LIFE or letting LIFE PASS YOU BY?

Take some time to think about who you are.
So the next time someone asks you,
you’ll have a great answer.
