Although the monkey might dress in silk, monkey it still is. (Puerto Rican proverb)

You’ve probably met someone who has put on a front, pretending to be something he or she really isn’t. That’s okay for an actor on stage or in a film. In fact, when we see some of those actors offstage, we’re sometimes disappointed that they aren’t what they appeared to be onstage. We must develop our inward character to live out what we really are.

May you always be filled with the fruit of your salvation—the righteous character produced in your life by Jesus Christ (Philippians 1:11).
