To Thy Own Self Be True

To thy own self be true… It seems right, it feels right and it sounds right. It is not right. Instead, be the man or the woman, the young man or young woman God created you to be. I know what that person is like. He or she is like Jesus. Rather than trying to earn our identity and be accepted by the world around us, we should receive the identity that has been given to us in and through the gospel: we are called sons and daughters of God.
