You're not a snowman unless you're made of snow.
You're not a fruit unless you have seeds.
You're not a ball unless you're round.
You're not an athlete until you have a sport.
You're not a lawyer until you've done a case.
You're not a politician until you win for a position.
You're not God unless you've done what He's done, and is doing what He's doing.
You're not smart unless you have the grades.
You're not rich unless you have the money.
You're not poor unless you're suffering.
You're not tough unless you've been in a fistfight.
You're not good unless you've done something good, or avoided something bad.
You haven't helped unless you've given something.
The point here is this: you're never something unless you can prove it. Something has to point to what you are. Even a fact has to be proven true.
That's just the way it is. Yes, it would have been easier if we didn't have to prove anything, if we didn't have to show anyone something that will make them nod in approval, if we didn't have to try. But when that long-awaited moment comes, what will we all be? Empty, with nothing to work for. We won't even have to do our best, but we'll be empty.
Thank God that we have to prove, for we work harder for what we want to achieve, end up helping more people along the way, and achieve something greater than what we really deserve.
