Norman Jean Douglas- Germans have a saying, “Ware was du bist” (Become what you are). The meaning was difficult for me until a minister gave me the following analogy. When a reigning monarch has a child there appears to be no difference between that child and any other child. Both are fussy, have dirty diapers, throw temper tantrums, etc. But through years of patient training, exposure to “kingly” ways, role models and mentors, eventually there is a person who exhibits kingly attributes. We are children of the King but it takes time, effort, patience, and good role models before we become persons exhibiting kingly attributes. We have to “become what we are”- children of the King.
