July 18, 2021 - Change the definition

Because of Jesus Christ, our failures do not have to define us. They can refine us.

Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf, "God Among Us", General Conference, April 2021



When I look at myself, I see myself by what I've done in the past. In my mind, who I am is a complete sum of everything I've done. I am defined by that.


But, Jesus Christ doesn't see me by what I've done. To Him, I am not defined by that. To Him, I am defined by who I am spiritually, i.e., who I am as a spirit child of Heavenly Father...who I was before being born on earth.


I need to learn to see myself that way too. I need to figure out who I was there first of all. Seeing myself that way will also allow me to see others that way, not for what they do on earth.
