"In our world of designer knockoffs, imitation sweeteners, we discover that people can be artificial too. We play one another in the game of life. We lack sincerity and depth and wear plastic smiles. We don't say what we mean and don't mean what we say.
But there is hope: "Reality...is found in Christ" (Colossians 2:17). We do not have to be the people-pleasing, mask-wearing women we see so often in the world. We can be transformed into genuine women of God by modeling our lives after the truly authenic One: Jesus Christ."
