As I was thinking about Halloween coming up at the end of this month, I started thinking of jack-o-lanterns, costumes, masks, etc. Children always have a good time deciding who they are going to be and what they will wear as they go trick or treating and of course eating their treats.

 It reminded me of how some times we as grandparents tend to hide, conceal or disguise how we really feel about ourselves or who God designed us to be. Paul writes in Ephesians 2:10, “For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” God created us to be genuine, authentic, sincere, and truthful, pleasing Him with doing good works for Him. Wearing a mask to cover up who God designed us to be will not bring us fulfillment.

 Let’s ask ourselves:

  • Do I really believe God is who He says He is?
  • Do I really believe I am who God says I am?
  • Do my grandchildren see that Jesus Christ is the focal point of my life?
  • On the other hand, do they think I am wearing a spiritual mask?

 

 During this Halloween season, let us encourage our grandchildren to be real and honest and not wear masks in their relationship with Jesus Christ, their families and at school.

“A truthful witness saves lives, but a false witness is deceitful”

(Proverbs 14:25 NIV).
