Trick or Treater

Recently I was thinking about small children dressed as ghost and goblins for Halloween.  When we open the door to pass out candy, we even feign fear and surprise at whatever costume that is before us.  But never, do we believe for an instant  that the child wearing that costume is what he/she is portraying.  As we think of an adult with an unpleasant character trait, shouldn’t we see that as not belonging to God’s precious creation?

Ephesians 1:32 states “And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.”  Today, I will not be fooled by anything ungodlike belonging to one of His children, including myself.  That will include even a physical ailment!

  1. Love your analogy between a Halloween mask and one with an unpleasant character trait. A particular trait(s), unbecoming, is only a mask error wants to force upon us to fool, separate, or belittle the true man. I appreciate your help in reinforcing the Truth that we are all God’s perfect, loving and genuine expression. 🙏
