What are you pretending not to know?

2 Corinthians 3:12-14 - “12 Since we have such a hope, we are very bold, 13 not like Moses, who would put a veil over his face so that the Israelites might not gaze at the outcome of what was being brought to an end. 14 But their minds were hardened.”

In yesterday’s sermon, Brenna discussed the power of authenticity in our communities and in us as individuals. The above verse makes a clear distinction between the example set by Moses and the Israelites and how we are to live today.

Instead of hiding the truth from our own hearts and from each other, what would it look like to be open and honest?

Think of one moment in the last week where you felt tension but didn’t address it, whether it was between you and another person, you and God, or just in your own mind. What tool(s) did you use to deflect this truth? Next time, what can you do to face it instead of obscuring or hiding the issue?
