North Upward

How often was Jesus challenged in His identity? Why would I think my life would not face the same scrutiny? He even asked His disciples, “Who do people say I am?”* It’s no wonder we ask our closest friends, “what do you see in me?” These are the moments where we check our compass. Are we reflecting the love of Christ or just reflecting frustrations? It’s interesting that a compass always points upward to the north, reminding us there is a higher point to aspire to.

Jesus never asked questions because He didn’t know the answer; He asked in order to stir up our ability to look deeper into everything, including how we would see ourselves.

*Mark 8:27b
