Our actions reveal who we are


Church Calendar

Charles Warner | The Union Times Though some are good at concealing their inner nature, their true selves, who we really are on the inside is sooner or later revealed by the choices we make and the actions we take. We cannot be a good person on the outside and a bad person on the inside because sooner or later we will say and/or do something that will reveal who we truly are. We also be cannot be good on the inside but bad on the outside because on the one hand our bad behavior will sooner or later destroy all that is good within us, while on the other hand good people who choose to act bad and do so repeatedly aren’t really good people at all. What we do in life and how we treat others tells those around us who we really are and, even if we can fool those around us despite our behavior, God knows who we truly are and, sooner or later, reveals to us His knowledge of who we really are and the consequences of being that type of person.
