Acting or Acting?

One step forward and two, three or ten back is normal.


Now, by definition to be hypocritical is to act in a way contrary to our beliefs or proclamations. Living a hypocritical life rhythm is about acting. Faking. Choosing at every turn to be something or someone we aren't.


On the other hand, we all stumble, fail and use poor judgement on any given day. In fact, maturing in our parenting, EQ, skill-set, spiritual gifts or creative pursuits requires faulty steps and missed observations. Acting out our beliefs and preferred future, even imperfectly, is part of the journey.


The difference is clear, isn't it? You and I aren't defined by our missteps, no, we brush them off, learn and give it another go. On the other hand, a life rhythm of pretending does make one a hypocrite.


Are you a writer, or do you just claim to be writing that book?


Are you parenting, or do you leave that blessing / burden to others?


Are you worshiping God, or do you just polish up your language when it's convenient?
