Your Persona

There is a difference between a personality and a persona. You are born with a personality. It is what you are by creation. A persona is what you want to appear to be. It is what you want others to think you are. It is a mask, something pretended. It is not your true self.

We all have a persona. Some of them are innocent. Some are deadly. Some are just hypocritical.

Hypocrites have a persona of being good, righteous, or religious. Hypocrites are despised by other people.

Some people have a persona of being bad or tough. They are pretending to be bad in order to impress other people who are also pretending to be bad.

What is your persona? You can fool people, but you cannot fool God.
