Who do think you are?

Morning: Psalm 75, 76; Numbers 3:1-13; 2 Corinthians 13:1-14
Evening: Psalm 23, 27; Luke 20:1-8

“Who do you think you are!?” People ask this either to assert their authority or to question someone else’s. True authority needs no defence; it rings true. It is found wherever truth is the ‘author’ of a life.  When they challenged Jesus’ authority, he showed them that they were asking the wrong question. The right question may be one I must ask myself: “Who do I think I am?” If I think of myself with humility and honesty, my life will have authority.  Then I won’t worry about where you get your authority; I will know.
