How have we behaved?
In dealing with each other, there are so many things behind the scenes that we can barely see or sense. The most tangible or concrete thing we can assess is our work or behavior.
Why have we behaved in certain ways? Do our behaviors indicate a certain pattern that could define an aspect of who we are?
The challenge to be authentic means to be mindful of our behaviors – deliberate even – so that our behaviors become manifestations of our beliefs, attitudes, values, and intentions.
If we want others to have faith in us, the low-hanging fruit is to build a track record of behaviors that others can lean on and trust.
How have we behaved? Hopefully, we have behaved in such a way that we deserve to have the faith of others. Or at least, we should be able to deserve to have faith in ourselves.
John 5:31-47. The works that the Father gave me to accomplish, these works that I perform testify on my behalf that the Father has sent me.
