Keep on believing

Being called a hypocrite is almost inevitable in a Christian life. Believing in the high ideals of love lived by Jesus Christ but failing in everyday ways to live up to them does invite vehement criticism from the world at times. This is to be borne gracefully. Jesus says one practical thing that we can do to avoid the label hypocrite is not to judge the moral failings of others. Instead we must concentrate on our own moral failings and invite God’s love into them.
