We must LIVE AUTHENTIC LIVES. When we are Authentic, it means we are the "REAL thing", GENUINE, "What you see is what you GET" and STEADY regarding our life TRUTH.
Remember last week...TRUTH means FIDELITY to a required standard; the state or quality of being faithful to; a system of concepts that reflect a perspective.
Ladies, our first responsibility is to be AUTHENTIC with ourselves. We are of no value to others until we live "IN" VALUE to ourselves. This means that we 'honor" and find our OWN perspective important. Until we know what we believe and are willing to stand up for it... we bring nothing "to the table" for others.
Everyone is NOT going to agree with YOU! You need to learn to be o.k with that. You need to be true to YOU.
In order to live in peace and happiness, we must be comfortable with ourselves. We must STANDfor what we believe and not shift and change to fit the mold of others. This doesn't mean that we are not flexible in our relationships and open to others ways of doing things. It means we are settled in our TRUTH, the foundation for our belief system.
As Kingdom Women our TRUTH is based on the TRUE WORD, but we MUST live it OUT, so it develops and becomes a "sincere" expression!
As the saying goes... "TO THY OWN-SELF BE TRUE"..
7 For truly, let not such a person imagine that he will receive anything [he asks for] from the Lord,
8 [For being as he is] a man of two minds (hesitating, dubious, irresolute), [he is] unstable and unreliable and uncertain about everything [he thinks, feels, decides].
James 1: 7-8
