I found this post on ChristianBlessings. It fits right in with my two posts this week, “The Problem With Masks” and “Taking Off The Mask”. Enjoy.
In just a couple of days, people of all ages will spend a lot of time, money and energy to dress up. They will wear costumes, make-up, and masks. For this one night, we will expect to see people in Disguise… Camouflaged… concealed…their true identity will be hidden.
If the truth were known, we all wear some kind of mask everyday. We wake up to face the day often feeling the need to cover and hide the things that are going on in our lives.
Sadly, this seems especially true in the church today. On any given Sunday, the church building is filled with hurting people that have struggled to even make it through the front door, but feel the need to put on a Fake Smile to disguise the hurt that is causing them to fall apart on the inside.
What are you hiding behind your mask?
