THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
TAKE OFF THE MASK AND GET HONEST WITH YOURSELF
Facing the TRUTH about ourselves can be uncomfortable. It’s hard to ADMIT that the real reason we were so NICE to someone was because we wanted to get something FROM them. Or, that we may be smiling and congratulating a coworker for their PROMOTION, but on the INSIDE we think we deserve it MORE than they do. If you pull back the mask and get honest with yourself, THAT’S when you can deal with the HIDDEN issues that hold you BACK—the MOTIVES, the PRIDE, the JEALOUSY, the INSECURITY.
Are YOU wearing masks today? The apostle Paul says our lives should be open BOOKS. We’re NOT wearing masks, thinking one thing and saying ANOTHER. We’re not PERFECT, but we’re dealing with the ISSUES. We’re not PRETENDING. We’re REAL. What you see is what you GET. When you live OPENLY and HONESTLY, God will MAKE you and MOLD you into a vessel of HONOR and use you for His highest PURPOSES.
2 Corinthians 4:2, MSG
We refuse to wear masks and play games. We don’t maneuver and manipulate behind the scenes…. Rather, we keep everything we do and say out in the open.
