I hope that this day finds you well and that you are feeling blessed by the grace of our Lord and Savior. I come to you today with a message of wisdom and encouragement centered on the understanding that it is not hypocritical to do things that we don't "feel" like doing.
Let us begin by examining the definition of hypocrisy. It is the act of pretending to have virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc., that one does not possess. Therefore, we need to understand that we are not hypocrites when we act responsibly by doing things we know we must do, even if we don't necessarily feel like doing them.
For instance, we may not feel like going to Church, cooking a meal, or going to work, but we still do it because it is our responsibility. The Bible tells us in Colossians 3:23-24, "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving."
It is our duty to work diligently and with a sense of purpose and commitment, regardless of how we feel. The Scriptures also tell us in Proverbs 13:4, "The sluggard craves and gets nothing, but the desires of the diligent are fully satisfied."
However, we become hypocrites only when we say that we enjoy doing things we don't feel like doing. This is because we are not being truthful with ourselves and with others. We must be honest about how we feel and why we do what we do.
We must always strive to act with integrity and authenticity, and the Bible tells us in Matthew 5:37, "All you need to say is simply 'Yes' or 'No'; anything beyond this comes from the evil one." Let our words and actions be a reflection of our true selves, guided by the Holy Spirit.
In conclusion, let us not be afraid to do what we know is right, even when we don't feel like it. Let us follow the guidance of the Lord, who tells us in Romans 12:11 to "Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord." May we always strive to act with authenticity, humility, and love, guided by the eternal light of His grace.
