We all want others to like us, so it's only natural to put your best foot forward.  You don't have to look any farther than Facebook to see that many postings will give you a false sense of perfect people with perfect families.  As those who follow Christ, we must be especially cautious we don't present a false picture to the world.  We should be willing to be transparent with our failures because this reveals how we overcome them, which is through faith in Christ.  This is especially important with our children.  When you fail, admit it, ask for forgiveness of the person and God, and move on.  In this way, others and your family will see someone who is authentic and shows a need for God.
