Becoming #1

The most important thing in your life is not what you do; it’s who you become. (Dallas Willard, retired philosophy professor)

When we meet someone new, one of our very first questions often is “And what do you do (for a living)?” It always seems important for us to know his or her occupation, as if that would tell us a lot about the person. But how someone lives and behaves is a far better indication of that person’s character. That will best be determined over time as we learn to know people better.

For we are each responsible for our own conduct (Galatians 6:5).

Even children are known by the way they act, whether their conduct is pure, and whether it is right (Proverbs 20:11).
