Mirror or Mask

Ravi Zacharias is a well known apologist who speaks to overflowing crowds at universities and symposiums. After a particularly difficult evening, while his host was taking him to his hotel he told him a brief story. The man had invited an atheist professor from the University to hear Mr. Zacharias at an earlier event. The woman had agreed to come since it was being held at the school. As the man and his wife took their guest home, they asked what she thought of Zacharias’ speech. The woman responded, “Powerful, very powerful. I wonder what he is like at home.”

Our public life is either a reflection of our hearts or a mask to hide our true character.
