"For whom am I?"

What I want to share today is from the last chapter of Pope Francis' Exhortation, Christus Vivit which is on discernment. This is the passage that has stayed with me:

“So often in life, we waste time asking ourselves: ’Who am I?’ You can keep asking ‘Who am I?’ for the rest of your lives. But the real question is: ‘For whom am I?’ Of course, you are for God. But he has given you many qualities, inclinations, gifts and charisms that are not for you, but for you to share with those around you.”
It might be good to make a list of our qualities, inclinations, gifts and charisms to see how I am sharing them with those around me.
