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!
