“For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known” (Luke 12:2).Text — Luke 12:1-3
There was a young lady who lived an extravagant life on a university campus in Nigeria. She told everyone around her that her parents were millionaires. However, she was making her money for her high life from male friends outside the campus. One day, her poor mother came to see her. On hearing that her mother was looking for her, she denounced her, saying that she was not her mother.
It was a bitter experience for the mother who wept openly. Jesus, from our text, warned His disciples of hypocrisy. Hypocrisy is synonymous to the idiom, “live a lie.” It is a life of hiding the truth about oneself. It means to live a false or deceptive life, a life of pretense.
Do you hide any sinful habit? Do you collect money from your parents by deceit? Does your life at school tally with your life at home? A life of duplicity does not end well. You can be free from this fake life if you come to Jesus now in true repentance. Lying is a sin (Revelation 21:8).
Be free from this fake life
When you live a lie, you fool yourself.
