We live in an epically fake world. We edit our pictures before posting them online. We adjust our clothing to match what we think we are supposed to look like. We dye our hair so we look better. We put makeup on so we'll feel beautiful. We change who we are for the sake of what a strangers' opinion of us might be.
Technology has become both a blessing and a curse to our society. There are advances in science that can literally save and change peoples' lives while social media is tearing us down and turning us into plastic dolls. What's the point of saving ourselves if we are no longer relevant? We care more about who people think we are than who we have become. We spend more time padding our stats than helping our fellow man. We feel like, if people see us mess up, it will all be over; people have to know we're infallible.
You may not realize this, but you were born to make mistakes. You were made to be imperfect. You were created to grow and love and encourage. We were made to support, care-for and build-up one another. We were not created to display a fake perfection while walking over our fellow man.
We have lost sight of ourselves by getting wrapped up in falsities that will never sustain us. Beauty will fade and we will be left with a shell that has nothing inside of it; for, instead of bettering who we are, we focus on impressing people with our lies.
So why do we do this? Why are we so focused on what people think of us instead of who God knows we are? We were made to be incredible, but we are not acting like it. When do we turn back to God and beg His forgiveness for allowing a fallen angel to guide our footsteps? When will it be too late?
