Find out where you can find your identity and how you can have empathy for others.

Key Points:

  • Many people these days don’t have a strong sense of identity or purpose.
  • Ideals are the things we think are important and want to go for, but values are the things we actually commit to achieving.
  • When we struggle with identity, it is because we don’t know our purposes in life or our value in this world.
  • Empathy is the ability to care for others in their circumstances, and it is a trait sadly lacking in our media-crazy, mile-a-minute society.

Where am I getting my sense of purpose and self-worth if it doesn’t come from a creator? -Lecrae
