Identity, Purpose, and Desire: Living as Children of God

This week, we pause to meditate on our identity, purpose, and desire.

Identity: We are the children of God. It’s who we are at the center of who we are. Pause and ask God, who am I?

Purpose: If we are the children of God, then our purpose is to love and live as God does. There might sense of purposelessness, so we dive deeper into screen time. If so, then there’s a need for restoring the sense of purpose by doing chores and cultivating your relationships with others.

Desire: What do you really want? What do you seek?

Snippet from the Show

“Connection is more important than perfection.”


When we act poorly, it’s often because we’ve forgotten who we essentially are; children of God.
