We all have many experiences, ideas, traits, hopes, and relationships that make up who we are. But who are we really? We are who we are when we stand before our Maker. A servant of Him loses every other title and is simply, in His presence, His servant.
Our hopes, loves, prayers, desires, actions, devotion, and honesty in front of Hashem should be the main thing we cultivate in our lives because without this foundation, everything else is brittle and dark. He is the water to our roots, the light to our leaves, and the one to whom we belong. And that is who we really, most genuinely are, no matter what most others see. We should pour loving investment into making this treasure beautiful to the one who sees the heart.
