By Steve Wickham – “When we are genuine, people meet us in a human way and get a glimpse of our personal life of faith.” ~RICHARD M. GULA There is a gift we can give another person; every other person! This gift is a gift to ourselves as much of the other person, but the other person benefits in ways that are quite rare. They get a real person. And when we are genuine, we also gain by being that real person. We shouldn’t assume that being a real person is an easy thing.
