I have been struggling with this idea that we get our identity from other and if we could just forget about the opinions of others and live in God's opinion of us we could do all sorts of cool stuff with God. But most of us are so concerned with what others think we are paralyzed.
I was thinking about a sermon on this idea all day so tonight I am playing guitar in the Sanctuary of my church and this idea comes to me "The Man Who Didn't Care: A Fairy Tale" and it just felt right. I don't know if this is good. (I haven't read it yet, only just typed what was in my head) but it feels right somehow. I do know that if someone really only cared about what God thought of him he would stand out enough that others would notice.
