It’s been almost three weeks since I first set out to reform my hypocritical ways. It’s been an overall positive experience so far.
The worst part would have to be owning up to a lot of the awful habits and attitudes that have crept in and taken over.
I thought it would be really difficult to stick with my goal of reading the Bible every day. And I guess, if I were handing out grades, I would not get a perfect 100%. But I think that giving myself enough grace to move past the bumps in the road has helped tremendously. It has also helped that I did not attempt a difficult reading plan which I would be bound to mess up.
The bottom line on the Bible reading for me has been Low Expectations + Grace = Sustainability.
As a hypocrite, life has been a series of deceptions. Who I am does not match up with who I claim to be. I am finding the truth about who I am, the good and the bad. And that gives me hope.
