We are children of one or the other. We either serve to bring truth and love and mercy and forgiveness to the world, giving of ourselves to build up others. Or we serve the purpose of tearing down others to build up the image of ourselves. We are either seeking to honor God and honor others, or we are expecting honor for ourselves.
