How true of a vision of ourselves do we present to others? In sharing a story, do we fully and honestly tell “the whole truth and nothing but the truth” or are we more selective? There are times when we may want to stomp our feet and scream, but we don’t. Why not? Because we like to keep the ugly locked away and hidden.
Are we the same way with God? Do we come before Him with partial truths and incomplete confessions? Even though we know that He knows all, at times we are not transparent and open.
Do we offer God partials? All of my heart? Really? Can’t I just keep this part here and that part over there? Isn’t ‘most’ good enough? Not in the end. Is some better than none? Certainly! But God wants to be our “all in all” not just our “some of a bit”. It is a journey. The question we need to be asking is do we love Jesus more today than we did yesterday or a week or a year ago? Is our faith growing? After all, in reality, we are a work in progress.
