Is it fake?



This watch is a front.  I wore it a few days ago because it matched my earrings and necklace.  I pretended as though I used it to tell time.  It's been stuck on 9:55 for years.  The watch is a showpiece, worn for appearances.  Presenting something as true when you know in fact it is false is the height of hypocrisy.  

Romans 12:9a

Let love be without hypocrisy. 

Love is sincere and pure without ulterior motive or self-contentedness.  How does a person discern whether love is the real deal or hypocrisy?  If love is on display for special occasions only, it's probably fake.  If your needs must be met in order to love another, it is counterfeit.  If love is used to manipulate others, it is plain deception.  If convenience is a deal breaker, your love is conditional.  Love as a farce is contrary to Christian love.  To commit completely to fulfilling the needs of the one loved despite the cost to one self is authentic love.  Wearing a fake watch is hypocritical but harmless, not so with love.
