Don’t Pigeon-hole Yourself

Sunday 21 February 

How do we self-define and how do we self-limit by pigeon-holing ourselves.

I have had a number of conversations in the past week where, within the conversation, someone has self-defined and self-limited by one singular way of describing themselves. The categories chosen were around age, illness, orientation, wealth, work status and relationships

Yet one particular person with a life changing illness refused to be pigeon-holed by their condition. In fact they have a certain holiness because their life is filled with a Christ-like drive to live life in all its fullness and experience.

If we limit Jesus by defining him don’t do the same to yourself. 

Don’t pigeon-hole yourself
