Practicing vs. Pretending

by: Nicole L. Ellis


To presume a false identify attempting to be real

Yet the lies that spew from ones lips

Are anything but ideal

With the ability to quote scriptures from the Good book

Yet their lives indicate they never really took a good look

A look at the words that require action

People who pretend lack the application of living for God’s satisfaction


An habitual act of turning words into a plan

It doesn’t mean one is perfect

Rather it means they took time to understand

They did more than just read the Word

Their life is an indication of what was applied, but first heard

Pretending Christians sell a false sense of perfection

Dictating verses that they don’t live by

Who cares what they say when their actions reveal they are a lie

Practicing Christians may fall and even stumble

Yet the consistent act of trying allows them to remain humble

They may mess up from time to time

But their diligence and repentance keeps them in favor with the Most High

Pretending won’t get you to heaven

It won’t even save your soul

Practicing God’s Accepted Word is the only avenue

That will lead you to live a life that is whole!

Have a blessed day!
