So, we all have a question, and what do we do with it? We try to cover it up. Avoid it. Like Adam& Eve, we were made in God’s image. Then, like them, we went looking outside of God for answers. And, like them, we’ve sinned against God—gravely. Finally, like them, we’ve come up with a way to cover up our question with what Eldredge calls the fig leaf. The fake. The poser. Call it whatever you want, but we try to hide from the answer to our question. Maybe you’ve faked the funny man, popular girl, nice guy/girl, independent woman, strong man, money guy, "kardashian" sister, family man, just a mom, leader guy, boss woman or better yet, the ladies’ man, the girl every guy wants. Then one day you realized the poser wasn’t enough. The next person was smarter, stronger, whatever-er. Like me, you have three choices. One: Avoid situations where the next person could out-do you. You know, “If I can’t win, I won’t play.” Two: Double-down, try harder, and go bigger with your fig leaf. Or three: Give up the fig leaf, stop hiding, and take the risky step to pursue and rely on God’s answer to your question. The first assumes there is NO answer. The second assumes YOU'RE the answer. The third assumes GOD has the answer.
The fig leaf is a sham!!!
