If man calls you a saint, what does that make you in God’s eyes?
If man calls you a bishop, what does that make you in God’s eyes?
If man calls you the pope, what does that make you in God’s eyes?
If man calls you a holy man, what does that make you in God’s eyes?
If man calls you a doctor, what does that make you in God’s eyes?
If man calls you a thief, what does that make you in God’s eyes?
If man calls you a beggar, what does that make you in God’s eyes?
If man calls you a liar, what does that make you in God’s eyes?

Man gives you degrees. Man gives you titles. Man gives you recognition. Man gives you all of these things and you ask yourself who you are that you should receive these acknowledgments. You claim it would not be possible without Him and you claim that you are nothing without Him, yet you feel the need to preface your name with titles and decoration. You line your pockets with cash. You build grand buildings of worship. You call yourself many things and yet everything is forgotten. People continue to suffer. People continue to go hungry.

You ask yourself who you are that you should question receiving all these titles and degrees bestowed on you. You are the keeper of your soul. You are the keeper of your brothers and sisters. You are the keeper of this place you call home. You are the keeper of the sick. You are the keeper of the less fortunate. You are the keeper of the misinformed. You are the keeper of the innocent. You are the keeper of the lost. You are the keeper of all things unjust.

You are.
