Why are we afraid to be transparent? Why do we feel that we must hide a piece of who we are? There is no doubt that there is a time and a place to use discretion and to choose who we will be transparent with; however, discretion should not lead to hiding who we are as a person. Transparency, at times, may come at a cost, but your transparency may evoke someone's deliverance. The fruit we bear is a reflection of the lifestyles we live. If we are adamant about hiding the life that we live, we may lose an opportunity to produce more fruit.
