Driving this morning, I thought about an analogy to use in teaching the lesson, “How Genuine Are You,” from James 1:19-27. We’ve all heard about various types of cowboys— rodeo, drug store, urban, midnight, etc., but what is a genuine cowboy?
The lyrics of this song help to delineate a real cowboy. That’s probably as far as you need to go to make the analogy interesting and keep it appropriate. This sets up the question, "What delineates a genuine Christian?"
