It is difficult to separate/alienate who you are from what you create. Because out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks, the hand writes, the fingers mold.
And out of your bellies shall flow rivers of living waters (or dead waters)!
The creation will imitate the creator and the product will always bear the trademark of the manufacturer.
Even in cases of pretense and deceit, like counterfeits and imitations, time becomes our infallible judge. Soon the paint will wear off and the engine pack up. The imposter is disclosed.
Just as how the fraud is made known with time so also will your authenticity and originality be proven with time.
So no need to hurry. No need to fuss. Don’t self-doubt your worth simply because the crowd is facing the other direction. Stay the course. Put in your quota. Get better each day. And in time you will receive your reward; in this life and in the world after. “Well done, good and faithful servant!”
1 Corinthians 3:13
Their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person’s work. – NIV
