I said, "A hypocrite is someone who tells everyone that doing a thing is very important, but then goes and does the opposite. Or another way to look at it: a hypocrite is someone who says the rules are important, but doesn't think he or she needs to follow them. Like, 'Do as I say, but not as I do.'"
She rolled her eyes in impatience at the thought of such a person and muttered, "Whatever!"
Some people refuse to join the church because they believe it to be full of hypocrites. My inward response is, "It sure is, and you'll be in good company." We're all hypocrites. But every day we are given new opportunities to forsake hypocrisy and try again.
