By their fruits ye shall know them. (Matthew 7:16)
If someone tells you who they are instead of being who they are, pay more attention to their actions than their words.
If someone says "somebody needs to do something about ..." they aren't referring to themselves.
If someone has made promises they didn't keep, don't believe their subsequent promises.
If they say they value [fill in the blank], look at their checkbook register to see where their money goes. That will give you the biggest clue what their values really are.
What will your actions reveal about you today?
