We are all actors ...?

Day 17

How good an actor are you? To be an actor means that you are not yourself, you are not true, an imitation of someone else.

The word HYPOCRITE means actor.

So maybe the question should be - How good an hypocrite are you?

Jesus warns the scribes and the Pharisees in the temple, to clean the inner vessel.

Dirty outside cup tilt 1

'Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.
Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of then may be clean also.
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and all uncleanness.
Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.' (Matthew 23:25-28)

How many times do we know the law but do not keep it because we fear man more then God? I would say, too many times in a day never mind a week or a life time.

God is telling me to cleanse the inner vessel. I am not a bad person but maybe i am a better actor then i should be!
