Matching…perhaps, that is the ultimate feat of self-control??…the ultimate accomplishment of a work in progress?…of a life in progress
complete unity!…the matching of our inner thoughts with our outer words and with our actions both big and small.
Outwardly…we put our best foot forward…don’t we all like to be viewed as good, or kind or compassionate or whatever…(insert your favorite positive trait here)…but does that match the kind of person we truly are on the inside??
and not bitter sweet
am reminded of this verse:
“Now that you have purified yourselves by your obedience to the truth with unhypocritical brotherly affection as the result, love one another intensely from the heart.” (1 Peter 1:22)
