what do you let folks see?

How much of your real self do you allow folks to see?  Let's be honest, we all have our good points and bad.  Some folks like to pretend that they don't have a dark side, but all of us are sinners.

I think in life we have two choices.  One is to try to show the good and hide the bad.  The other is to just be honest about who we are and let your warts be seen.

My concern with the pretending life is that it just isn't realistic.  Folks that act like they have it all together only end up disappointing others and having to work harder to keep up the facade. 

What you see is what you get folks, I find refreshing.  At least you know what you are dealing with.  I think the key to real friendship is knowing who your friend really is and accepting them, warts and all.  Folks that have to pretend, well, their relationships end up looking like the real housewives of some town.

Are you comfortable enough with yourself to let folks see you?  Do you trust God to love you even though you are not perfect?

It's a beautiful day in God's world, be sure to see the good.  And if you see some warts, just understand that they are all a part of our story.  God loves us and it is still good.
