What does it mean to be a good human?
It relates to our identity as image-bearers of God.
We were created in the image of God. Being in God's image points to our ability to connect with and commune with God.
We understand and receive our identity from being with God. In that way we need to be Human Beings - humans, being with God.
We exercise our identities in God by exercising/expressing God's will/intent/perspective in our roles and life spheres. We express our unique identities through our unique offerings to the world.
What do you have to offer the world? ... that is your unique Human doing.
To be a Good Human is to be a Human Being - with God and a Human Doing - through God's enablement and power.
At this point in your life, might God be encouraging you to grow on the Being or the Doing side?
We need both to be Good Humans!

Maybe you aren’t as blatantly crossing off your days, but you may feel like your weeks are somewhat purposeless, meaningless or boring. You may feel like you are passing your time more than living your life.
Today, I want to help you to lift your eyes … right where you are … to see your life from a totally different, life-changing vantage point. Are you ready for a life-upgrade?
Recognize that you have been placed in your exact location.
This may seem strange to you, but God has placed you in your spot, you...
