DAILY DEVO: do you quack or squeal when you walk?

"Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the fakest of them all?"

The magical mirror no longer reveals beauty but true identity. It's easy to spot a fake when you know what the real thing looks like. Test me and see. Try taking a fake $100 bill to a bank and see what happens.

What will happen is you will be found out quick because bank employees know what the real $100 bill looks like.

Too many people are trying to be Christian imposters. Phoney. Fake. Not the real deal. But it's not hard to spot the genuine ones from the imposters.

The Bible says we will know them by their fruit...

"You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they?" - Matthew 7:16

In other words, we will know the real deal by the way people act. If a duck quacks, then we know it's a duck. But if it squeals, the duck may be something else.

Same is true with people. A Christian cannot be loving to our face, but be picking up knives to throw when we turn our back. If they might have a squealing duck on your hands.

? for today...what happens when you you quack or do you squeal?

Make sure you do what you say and say what you mean. Be the real deal. Not a Christian imposter.
