I think it was Bob Hope who said, “Sincerity is the key to success. Once you’ve learned to fake that, you’ve got it made.”
It’s hard to fake sincerity. People can usually spot a phony a mile away.
Take, for instance, this love letter: “Dear John, I am so sorry that I broke off our engagement. I miss you so much. I am miserable without you. I think of you every waking moment and dream of you every night. Please forgive me! I will love you forever! Susie. P.S.—Congratulations on winning the lottery.”
That doesn’t sound very sincere to me!
The Bible urges us to be true in our love for God and our love for people. Examine yourself to see if you really are a loving person.
“Love must be sincere…”—Romans 12:9.
