Each day as I go to different places, I see people wearing masks. Sometimes, it seems that because of the masks, faces almost disappear.
How many of us are now hiding behind our masks? It used to be that we said somewhat cavalierly, and figuratively, that someone is just hiding behind a mask. Now with almost all of us literally wearing masks every day, are we starting to feel comfortable hiding behind the masks?
Let us not become like robots going about our daily business with our masks on caught up in our own world of problems and concerns. Let us not use the mask pass excuse.
Note the photo of my daughter at the top of this post. On this day, she expressed that she felt happy that she could go to the beach after an extended period of covid-19 lockdown. Behind her mask on this day, thankfully, she was feeling joyful.
In the Bible, we are encouraged to think about others more than ourselves. Romans 15:2 states, “Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, to build him up.” And in 1 Corinthians, 10:24, we are encouraged to “try to do what is good for others, not just what is good for yourselves.” Be encouraged and know that God knows who we really are behind the masks.
