Get Real!

Posted: October 6, 2012 in Church, Community, Courage, Fear, Honesty, Risk

“I’m not sure I want it but even if I did, I don’t think I want to pay that much.” We might say this about some stuff we would like to buy but there is the cost…too much.

What about acceptance, forgiveness or love? We are hungering for it but often are not willing to eliminate dishonesty required to get it. We will tell some of the truth but we have a line which we will not cross in talking about what is really going on in our life. Do we really want a community in which we can put all our thoughts out there with others, knowing they would still want to get coffee with us?

Psalm 15:2, Proverbs 27:17, Ephesians 4:25 and Colossians 3:9 should give us motivation to be real with people.
