Today it is hard to tell what’s real. What we see is not necessarily what we get. We all wear masks of some sort; some to hide our true thoughts, feelings and motives. Some masks portray how we would like to be perceived. Even the products we buy indicate that they are artificially flavored, although Coca-Cola’s slogan was It’s the Real Thing.
What’s real? Recently, there was a big brouhaha about Alicia Keys because she has been choosing to not wear makeup. People were literally in a tizzy because of it. Her going without makeup has no bearing on them, so what about her going without makeup bothers us so much?
Although there is a lot of artificiality about us, I cannot help but remember that we are but dust. We started there, and will return there.
For he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust. Psalms 103:14
Have a blessed day all! Let’s go to church today.
