Are you REAL?

Today's Five Minute Friday word is 

What comes to mind when I think of the word "real" - REAL people
We live in an unrealistic world and I think as a result we have alot of unrealistic people.
Social media is awesome to a certain extent, but in some ways, I think we can become superficial or feel somewhat threatened by a bunch of fake people, and their artificial lives.


What is real in the world today?
Pictures can be changed or fashioned to appear as something they really aren't.
Movies are made to make many things seem real - that really aren't.
People are not real - they put on a front - make others believe they are something they're not.
The internet has many curiosities, but what is really Real?

Jesus is REAL!
As Christians he is what we have to offer the world.
He is the only REAL way to deal with our problems and struggles in life.
Do we admit our difficulties so we can share the reality of how Jesus helps us?

18 Instruct them to do what is good, to be rich in good works, to be generous, willing to share, 19 storing up for themselves a good reserve for the age to come, so that they may take hold of life that is real.  I Timothy 6:18-19


  1. Such a great post. There is not much left that is real in this world. So thankful that we get to grab a hold of a real God. Stopping in from the FMF. Have a blessed weekend!

    1. Barbie, Thanks so much for stopping in. Don't know what I would do if it weren't for God!

  2. Amy, I am returning the visit from #FMF. I just love the scripture you used. What translation is that??? I wanted you to know that we are empty-nesters, so keeping things neat is easier than it was with three kids at home! xo

    1. Susan, Thanks for stopping by. I loved that Scripture too! I looked it up in another translation and it was a little different. This was the HCSB.


I love hearing from my readers. Thank you for leaving a comment.
