Recently I watched this beautiful video about a short life over at the Centre for Public Christianity (click here). The way that Helen describes the life of her daughter, Zoe, is very poignant and soul searching for our culture which is so driven by performance, achievement and setting oneself up as a success. Helen describes Zoe’s life as one which is simply to receive cuddles and love (around 3mins 30).
That got me thinking about what kind of life is satisfying or could possibly give someone a secure identity—I mean to be securely loved. Such a life is available in Christ (See John 3:16) and transforms someone from being a “discard” to someone valued before the creator of the universe.
