There’s a whole lotta smoke n’ mirrors commentary and appearances out there.
Most of which contains very little substance or decisive action. May we be set free from the cult of self. May our words, deeds and attitudes speak more about Jesus Christ; about the way to fullness of life, than the appearances or people pleasing that fuels likes, shares and comments; all things that ultimately only serve to excessively pad wallets and entertain egos.
As James puts it:
‘…the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.’ (James 1:25,ESV)
Allow no double talk.
Entertain no vain glory.
Confront all imitations.
Apply gratitude and prayer.
