THE MASK

Lk. 12:1 "In the mean time, when there were gathered together an innumerable multitude of people, insomuch that they trode one upon another, he began to say unto his disciples first of all, 'Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is HYPOCRISY.
2 For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.
3 Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.'"

We all hide behind a mask,
What did your mask look like, today?
Were you an upright citizen,
Or someone who went astray?

Were you the nicest guy on the block,
A Mom with all the skills;
A Dad who works twelve hours a day,
Just to pay all the bills?

Do you think you're a mighty man of God,
Used by Him in a powerful way;
Or, do you see how much you lack,
Dependant on our LORD…each day?

When we see how small we are,
Lean on Him…because we're weak;
Then, it's Christ who is seen,
And we, of all men…most meek.

The way up…is so often down,
Humbled, we must be;
Think too highly of ourselves,
Mighty men of God…not we!

A mask we wear,
Torn off…it must be;
The phony mask is thrown away,
From its bondage…we are free.

Free to be the real man,
Scary…it may seem;
But, when all is said and done,
'Tis always God's plan…to redeem.

For, man left to himself,
Knows only selfishness and greed;
No hope for him…beyond the grave,
Unless, to God…he will heed.

Our choice…always our choice,
The temporal or Eternal;
Let Him take off the mask,
The façade on our faces…unravel.
