Scripture: Romans 12:3-16
Today I want to reflect on something that has been a struggle in my faith journey. This is a teaching in the 8th-Day genre of sharing about one’s faith story. It’s a message for those of us who have struggled with self-confidence, of recognizing what we can contribute to our faith community and other communities that we are a part of.
What I’d like to share about is how I am too harsh with myself. I suffer from too much self judgment and it sometimes stops me from living a Christian life to its fullest. I’ve increasingly become aware of how being too hard on myself can be an obstacle in my job as a teacher in a DC high school and, perhaps, in other leadership roles.
