At any given time in our life there are many “hats” that we wear—spouse, single, parent, child, employee, employer, neighbor, friend, citizen, for example. Those “hats” change with the seasons and times of our lives, but every role, including that of Christian and “child of God” is well-defined in the Bible. God reviews our lives and commitments by how faithful we are in wearing the “many hats” we have, in accordance with His instructions.
