What are you going to be?

Most of us have been asked at some time, "What are you going to be?" Whether we are currently labeled "teenagers" or "old-age pensioners" this is still an important question. It covers much more than a wide range of human alternatives—technician, artist, professional, domestic, retiree, and so on. Our lives can't really be reduced to our particular résumé.

We all actually have unlimited opportunities to express an infinite range of qualities—spiritual qualities. The fact is we aren't mortals searching for work, losing it, or leaving it. We are in reality God's spiritual likeness, and our true purpose is to express His qualities in our lives. This work can be done, whatever one's current occupation may be. More specifically, we each are already intelligent, loving, fresh, full of integrity—and able to bring these qualities to bear on our particular situation. As Christ Jesus showed, we are to manifest the work of God.
