Play to Your Identity


"The most frustrating part for me as the head coach is you play 16 games, you create an identity as a football team and then the biggest game you play in that year you don't play to your identity in segments of the game."

Head coach Mike McCarthy, speaking two months after the Packers' 51-45 overtime loss at the Arizona Cardinals in the wild-card round of the NFC playoffs Jan. 10.
This makes me think. How many times, when the pressure is on, do we fail to "play to our identity" as followers of Christ?

We fail when - we forget who we are, change to try to please others, forget our real mission in life, and try to gain recognition for ourselves.

The worst thing we can do is think - it is all about me!
