Give Up on “Finding Yourself”

Tuesday is for Discipleship

Diving into SelfI stopped trying to “find myself” and decided to seek God.

—Mark Batterson
.   All In, (Zondervan, 2013)

Great quote from New York Times bestseller All In by Mark Batterson. Good advice and completely in sync with Jesus’s word in Matthew 10:39  . . .

Those who find their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for My sake will find it.

Jesus no where tells us to spend any energy at all on finding ourselves. But nearly every page of Scripture cries out for us to find Him, to seek Him, to pursue Him and let Him take care of all that concerns us. Our modern search for self is taking us no where but into narcissism and emptiness.

Let’s dive into Christ not self. Let’s find ourselves by losing ourselves in Him.
