Have you ever stood in front of the mirror – and you look into your eyes and you see the hollowness. You see the emptiness. You see deep into your heart — into the deepest of all your insecurities and fears. The razor is frozen in your hand. The eyeliner pen hovers above your brow. You cannot ever let anyone else see what you see.
“Is this all?”
You’ve been working hard at your job to get ahead. Long hours. Dedication. Loyalty. And maybe you get a placque that gets dusty and one day you’ll hold and wonder what it was for in the first place.
You might get ahead, but fall behind. You might gain some recognition, but is it worth it to lose something much deeper?
“What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?” Matt 16:26
