I am a hypocrite! A hypocrite is someone who behaves in a way that contradicts what they say they believe. I’m not proud of it and I am trying to do something about it. Every now and then I am reminded of how far I still am from being the person I say I want to be. A great example is once before work I stopped at the grocery store to load up on supplies for work. I went straight to the coffee and candy aisles. I loaded up on tons of coffee, candy and chocolate. It was at least $30 worth or more. Then I went to the checkout. While standing in line I looked over a rack of inspirational books. One caught my eye. It was a Christian book on Spiritual discernment. I looked at the price ($14.99). I agonized over whether to make this purchase. I mean, $14.99 is a lot of money for a book that I’m only going to read once. I piously decided to pray for guidance from the Holy Spirit. I prayed about whether I should buy this book or not. I wanted to be a good steward. I got an answer quickly and clearly. “You didn’t ask me about the coffee and candy so why are you asking me about this book?” I bought the book!
