Today’s Bible devotional brought to mind a quote of Shakespeare’s.
“This life, which had been the tomb of his virtue and of his honour, is but a walking shadow; a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more: it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.” The devotional discussed how men are often hiding their true selves at work. I think some of us play a different role depending on who or where we are. One of my grandchildren claims to do so, declaring it as her true identity.
Do we wear masks to hide our true identity, to escape the reality of who we are, to be accepted by those around us, or because we do not really know who we are? Whatever the reason, it’s poor acting and not fulfilling.
Life doesn’t have to be insignificant. Jesus promised this for those who would allow Him to shepherd them. “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”
