    I’m lazy and often approval-seeking.
    But I don’t think those adjectives, nor any in the “positive” list define me. It’s more, as you blogged a while back, is whom I belong to (http://jonathanpearson.net/2011/11/14/who-or-whos/ )

    I am inconsistent and lukewarm.
    Fortunately, God gives us opportunity after opportunity to get it right. He is patient with us; we need to be patient with ourselves.

    One of my favorite of your blogs, JP. Thanks for sharing! Currently pondering who I really am…

  4. I’m impatient and selfish. Those are the negative things that display my behavior. I’m loving, accepting, kind, and giving. Those are the positive things that display my behavior. I’m working on displaying more of the positive and less of the negative; it’s a battle.

    I would argue that if we’re not defined by what we do then what are we defined by?

    I’m serious though. I might say I’m not a liar or identify with being a liar, but if I lie guess what? I’m a liar.

    Our actions and behaviors are choices we make and tangibly manifest who we are and in turn shape and define us.

    Just ask anyone what they DO for a living and 9 times out of 10 they will say I AM a “_____” (accountant, bus driver, salesman, etc)

    Well for me this is very shocking! We actually never knew where our roots are unless we look for it.. Sometimes there is something good that really happens to us..
