What’s the most important thing about you?
As grown ups, we talk about identity and self-esteem and all that. I was talking with my kids the other day about the most important thing about them.
And then my grandpa died. Let’s face it: at your funeral, they mostly talk about the most important things about you. Everything else is forgotten. He would have liked this song.
A few of my favorite artists have a new song and it about- surprise, surprise!- the most important thing about life.
I rejoice in my Redeemer, Greatest treasure
Wellspring of my soul
I will trust in Him, no other;
My soul is satisfied in Him alone.
As summer flowers we fade and die:
Fame, youth and beauty hurry by.
But life eternal calls to us at the cross.
I will not boast in wealth or might,
Or human wisdom’s fleeting light.
But I will boast in knowing Christ at the cross.

So when the stuff of life seems overwhelming, my own wisdom is utterly insufficient, and I watch myself fade, I will trust Him. That’s the most important thing about me.
