How To Live Like A King
The everlasting question mankind seems to ask is, "Who Am I?"
I believe the answer to that question is in the heart of the individual who asked it. Yes, I know this might sound cheesy and cliché because this answer isn’t uncommon to hear but the reasoning behind the answer is what’s more important...
Acknowledge when you first asked yourself that question. What were the feelings behind those words?
Some of mine were confusion, doubt, worry, self-pity, anger, and I was thinking so negatively. It’s rare that the question is asked with a clear mind. If it were, the conclusion for most of us would’ve came a lot sooner.
You may not believe in the Christian faith but be open minded to the principle identified in Proverbs 27:19 —
" As in water face answereth to face, so the heart of man to man."
Back in those times, if you wanted to see what you looked like you had to find a natural source of reflection; for most people that was whatever body of water they were closest to. The reflection of water gave them the ability to see their face. Just as our hearts give us the ability to identify who we are.
With that being said, imagine how hard it is to get a good look at yourself in unclear water or water that’s disturbed with lots of ripples. You can probably make out some kind of imagine and some kind of idea of what you look like but it’s not as accurate as it could be in perfectly still, calm water.
The main problem isn’t that we don’t know where to find the answer for who we are, it’s that when most of us ask that question we’re usually distraught and have negative feelings operating on our hearts — disturbing the water from being calm enough to get a clear image.
I like to think back to when I had the most undisturbed mind, my childhood. Back when I was four or five I didn’t question who I was, I just knew that I am. I am me. I forget where in what chapter of Matthew but it guess on to say that unless you become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom…
A king or any Royal figure knows who they are and do not question their status. Let’s live like kings, today.
