I have been thinking about the one overriding quality that draws me to certain people, to certain blogs, to certain leaders or even churches. It would definitely have to be authenticity.
If something is authentic it is free from misrepresentation.
It is genuine.
It is real.
Things that are authentic usually are of great value because they are rare or because they bear their maker's name.
All people are valuable. Authentic people are valuable and rare and their Maker's Name is easy to see because pretense does not overshadow the work of art itself.
God, help me to be authentic. And genuine. And real. So that Your Name will be written on everything I do. And say. And touch. And so that Your Name would not be misrepresented by my life. Amen
Is this your prayer, too?
