The Great Pretender

When a waitress in Ohio asked to see a customer's driver's license, she was shocked when she saw the photo on the ID. It was her own picture! The waitress had lost her driver's license a month earlier, and this young woman was using it so she'd have "proof" she was old enough to drink alcohol. The police were called, and the customer was arrested for identity theft. Trying to gain what she wanted, she pretended to be someone she wasn't. Pretending goes on in many places today. Some people put on a false front. They use the right "Christian" words, attend church almost every Sunday, and even pray before meals. They pretend they "have it all together" in order to gain the approval of others. But inside they're struggling with brokenness, guilt, doubt, or an addiction or other persistent sin. God placed us in a body of believers to support one another. Just like here in "mylot" where we support one another by responding to a discussion, or posting some relevant issues. Admit that you aren't perfect. Then seek the counsel of a godly brother or sister in Christ. AC
