TOO MANY IDENTITIES

TOO MANY IDENTITIES

Young people find identity in a Pro-athletes and “A” teams
others idolize, emulating their rock or beloved film stars
adults, more subtle-- identify with careers , family roles-
hobbies, trends—celebrities—alluring images duplicated

Enthusiastically we akin to people and ideals appealing
conforming easily—desired images—accomplishments 
make conflicting—superfluous scheduled demands on us
as  passions will pull us in all directions confusing deviously

Perhaps identified pictures—affections are not Christ-ward
classifying  Jesus as Savior turn admirations to obligations
examine yourself—how do you envision yearning aspirations
we should mold-- keep  reflections- identity entirely on Him
