Real life. What’s yours like?
I was thinking this morning about reading someone else’s blog, and it really got me thinking. What is that blogger like in person? Many of the blogs I read are written by people whom I have never met face-to-face. What are they like? What are their values?
It made me think about my own blog. I’m sure most of my readers aren’t friends that I see at our church every week. What do they think of me? How do I portray myself on my blog? Would my readers, if they met me in person, say, “Yeah, that’s the same person,” or do I portray myself as an entirely different person? Would my readers meet me and say, “Wow – I can’t believe she acts like that – what a terrible testimony!”
I can say on my blog that I strive to be a Proverbs 31 woman, but if I do not live it, what does that make me? If I don’t try to obey God’s Word in real life, doesn’t that make me a hypocrite?
Sure, I try to live right and do what God would have me do, but if I portray myself as someone I’m not, then that would make me a hypocrite.
Lord, help me to live for you in all I do and say, not just in what I say!
