Take Off Your Mask

“Therefore, putting away all falsehood, speak the truth, each one to his neighbor, for we are members of one another.” -Ephesians 4:25

We are all so very good at wearing our masks. We hide behind false faces, routine responses, and surface-level interactions. We’re so used to doing this with both people and God, but it is a serious barrier between us all. What are your “masks”? What are some concrete ways that you can start “putting away all falsehood” and being more real with yourself, with God, and with everyone around you? It may be uncomfortable and unnatural at first, but it will be like a weight lifted off your heart every time you let go a little more of the control you exert over how others view you. When we reduce our focus on our own image and facade of perfection, we are able to better connect with our true selves, with God, and with everyone we encounter. Let’s work at this reckless abandon to who GOD has created us to be–with all our quirks and oddities–instead of who WE want to project ourselves as. Share that authentic YOU in truth and sincerity. You are hungry for authenticity, and so is everyone around you. +
