In the life of a person of faith-very few things are as annoying as a “person” who talks faith, looks good but doesn’t add any value to the movement. This person misrepresents their actions and deeds by lying on the regular.
This type of exaggeration is not only a hold up to the church and faith community. But, if I were to use a similarly situated secular example-I would use the example of a person who once said- that they have the skills of Basketball Legend Micheal Jordon-but when on the court they could not even pull off a grade school level jumper shot-what a major disappointment. (picture, below).
In the life of those who don’t exercise faith-they will always look for a reason to put the church down. Let’s not give them that reason, by being insincere.
According to Apostle James in Scripture_ Faith without works (deeds) is dead (James 2:26 NIV). I agree with Apostle James-When your works and deeds don’t coincide-we must consider the following takeaways:
- Examine your heart, Ask God to help you grow in “TRUTH AND IN SPIRIT.”
- Find out what internal struggles are inside of you and if those issues prevent you from doing sincere work. Then remove those struggles!
- Remind yourself the next time you misrepresent your commitment you destroy yourself because everything we do in life echo’s in eternity.
Lastly, as people of faith we must be prepared to navigate the difficult lifelong process that is “our walk with faith.” Please know that you can’t do that if you won’t “walk the right walk.” SO STOP FRONTIN! (glg)
