*BETTER A PRETENDER THAN A SCANDAL*
Temptation( skandalon, scandal) are sure to come, but woe to him by whom they come. Luke 17:1-6.
It is better to be a pretender, pretending to be good than living freely in the guise to be authentic and destroy others by our bad examples.
Those who are meant to lead normal life are those who have learnt the essentials of good life and can replicate it in their day to day living.
Even if we are to emulate only God, we cannot experience him except in man. God cannot exist where there is no man.
And since human condition is not always perfect, temptation will always come through him.
Let’s censure our life stlyes lest they corrupt others.
Let’s grow to know that no man is our perfect model.
As you journey through your days, may nothing of you destroy the innocence of others.
May you grow in grace to be a good example for others to follow. Amen.
Our actions are displayed to others to see and they emulate what they see us display.
