Edification When You Mean It

It's easy to waste time. Especially in conversation. I'm working on moving my speech towards edifying topics. But at the same time, it is hard to edify when you aren't living in an edifying manner. And in many cases you should just avoid being fake in this area. Being fake is hypocrisy. When I talk to someone who obviously isn't passionate about what they say I don't really appreciate talking to them. Edification needs passion. A passion for the Word. A passion for what God is doing in your life. Passion.

So true. It's easy to wind up pretending to care about something because you think you should. And once you put that mask on, it's hard to take it off. But if you don't really care, it'll show, and instead of making a difference, all you'll do is display yourself as a hypocrite, leaving you without any influence at all. It's a vicious cycle that I've been caught up in and still struggle with.
