“I used to be afraid that if I was authentic I might take a hit, but now I know that being real means I will take a hit.”
Bob Goff, Love Does
It seems to be human nature to protect ourselves by putting out a fake version of our priceless originals, in case of damage. What elements of your fake self are different from your real self?
When have you taken a hit for being the real you? How did it affect you?
When have you felt loved and accepted for being the real you? What does that show us about God’s love?
