When you are authentic, you are the real deal. You aren’t one thing in public and another thing in private. You aren’t one thing with this group and another thing with that group. To be authentic, you never put politics above people and popularity above principle. A conversation between Paul and Peter gives us a great example of what it looks like to be authentic. Paul reminds Peter that a big part of character is authenticity. It is being the same person in public as you are in private. You being you regardless of where you might be or who you might be with. Paul shows us what authenticity looks like, how authenticity acts, and why authenticity is important.
In this series we are calling “Mirror Image”, we are not talking about what you see physically when you look in a mirror. We are talking about what you see spiritually, and morally, and ethically when you look in a mirror. We are going to be talking about the most important thing about all of us, and that is our character.
