Hey, You Guys! I’m a Hypocrite!

IMG_20171016_150100797_HDRAccording to Webster, a hypocrite is a person who acts in contradiction to his or her stated beliefs or feelings. Unfortunately, I do that often, so by that definition I reckon I’m a hypocrite. Webster also defines a hypocrite as a person who puts on a false appearance of virtue or religion. I think most who know me, will agree I don’t fit that definition. I make no bones about the fact that I am who I am, and what I am is a terribly flawed human being. Oh, I’m not as bad as I used to be, but I’m still far from what I could be. The thing is, all I’m trying to do is encourage others, using the Bible as my guide. I try to find and focus on the good stuff and hope what I write will help others find and focus on it too. That’s it! So, if being me trying to be a better happier me and trying to help others be better and happier too, while at the same time being plain old messed up me, is being a hypocrite, then I am one! And… I’m okay with that.
