Tuesday of Week 2 Year 2

How many of us are true to ourselves, without pretense, and doing and saying things genuinely and with sincerity? Some of us may have become adept in playing games, to please our boss, leader or superior, thinking that by sounding good or curry-favoring the boss, leader or superior by saying and doing things just to please him or her, we think we would be able to remain in his or her good books. But the question is: how long can we maintain such a charade? Would we be really happy, content and at peace?

In today's reading, we are reminded that "God does not see as man sees; man looks at appearances but the Lord looks at the heart." We may be able to fool our boss, leader or superior, but we cannot fool God. We may appear to be good, holy or reliable in our tasks, but our hearts may be motivated by our pride, ego and self-preservation. We may seem to be the best candidate for a certain responsibility, but a discerning boss, leader or superior may see through our antics or false pretenses and choose another more suitable person. Let us make every effort to stop our false ways and nonsense, and humbly and genuinely walk in His ways.
