Every Monday I ask a question, to get to know YOU better. Ready for today’s? What personality traits do you like best about yourself?
Don’t be shocked or outraged—I’m not asking you to brag. We all know that whatever talents we possess came to us as gifts from the Lord. According to Jesus, without him we’d be nothing. With that in mind, it’s okay to say:
I like it that I can make friends with nearly everyone I meet. If you are a rocket scientist, a zoo keeper or a house painter, I will find something to chat with you about, and try to make you feel important and valuable, because YOU ARE! I also like that I love having fun. If there’s an amusing way to mop the floor, pay bills or weed the garden, I will try to discover it or invent it. I know these are gifts from the Lord, and I’m thankful for them. Thankful enough to say, “I like myself.”
