Who Are You?
We kicked off our week of middle school camp tonight with a full crew of camper and staff. Our theme is #DeathToSelfie--an emphasis on refusing to seek the approval of other people, but discovering who we are in Christ. I'm praying for a revealing of truth and a refusal to settle for anything less than a full understanding of who we are in Christ. It's not as much a desire to stop people from taking selfies as it is a desire to let go of the selfie mentality. We don't need to take pictures and then crop, edit, and filter them just so people will give us their approval. We need to be confident in how God sees us and move forward in that knowledge. It's a lesson adults struggle to grasp and I pray our middle schoolers can see the truth in it now. Recognizing this truth at their age will only help them be more confident as they continue to grow.
