who are we fooling?

 

we had a ‘wild’ monkey in catholic seminary.  good that it was chained and not rabid.  this one’s different – a lot bigger, well-behaved, and dressed up.  but still just a chimp.  even if you cover him with designer clothes and bling, he’s still a chimp.

how many times have we tried to cover up what we really are?  we say the right things, dress the right way, but inside we’re really just a fine mess.

the heart is more deceitful than all else And is desperately sick; who can understand it?”  (NASB : Jer 17:9)

God isn’t fooled by outward appearances.  He looks at the heart.   “Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight.  Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account. …”

i hope we see that clearly because it can’t get any plainer than that.
