Are We Acting on Stage?

When we gather at church, you will encounter a lot of actors and actresses on display. We put on our smiley faces and when we're asked by a brother or sister how we're doing, we respond with, "I'm doing fine," or "I'm doing great." We're great liars, aren't we? Most of the time, we're afraid to let our guard down and really reveal how we're feeling. As brothers and sisters in Christ, we should not be afraid to really tell others how we're feeling.

In James 5:16, it says to "confess our faults one to another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much." It is a shame that not everyone is trustworthy, and gossiping may arise, but this should not be. We're family. So when we gather together, it should be a safe haven to let your guard down.
