Esse Quam Videri – To Be Rather Than To Seem

The state motto of North Carolina is esse quam videri, “to be rather than to seem.” That phrase could be woven into a flag as the motto of every individual Christian as well. We aren’t called to seem like anything. We’re called to be who we truly are. The problem is, we live and work and eat and play in a world that is all about seeming. The world has it turned completely inside out; the unimportant is what matters in the world’s value system. – Operation Timothy, CBMC
