    Being Real

    What makes someone real?  For most of us, being real is living meaningful lives.

    Meaning can seem elusive, because we feel more alive on certain occasions than others, thinking that pleasure in the moment makes us come alive, like falling in love, or surviving extreme danger on an expedition into the Alps. It’s easy to think that feeling totally alive is the same as finding our purpose, living our destiny. I challenge that.

    Making prayer blankets may seem boring by comparison to mountain climbing, yet using our talents and skills to comfort those going through tough times, investing in other people’s lives, walking beside them along a harsh path satisfies our need for relevance and purpose. Whether we’re making prayer quilts, or prayer shawls what makes us real is not that we feel like it, but that we consistently use our skills and abilities to bring glory to God. Like Rick Warren says in his book The Purpose Driven Life, “It all starts with God.”
