A short while ago I stumbled on a friend’s post on Facebook and I was almost going to faint at the sight. I mean, this guy is someone I know his story so well.
The thing is that he beats his wife blue-black.
Yet on this particular day he went on and on gushing about how much he loved his wife and how he couldn’t do without her.
I felt like sending all the people who were commenting on his post and saying things like “perfect couple” or “you guys are an ideal couple” or “I covet your anointing” in for surgery to remove the scales off their eyes. The comments actually almost made me faint again.
I am narrating this experience to tell you two things:
Firstly, stop the hypocrisy please. Go back home and be good to your spouse for real. Many hide under the ability to put up a fake life on social media. This is not supposed to be so.
For you to be posing a perfect life for people to see, it seems to me that you admire that kind of lifestyle.
Why don’t you work at turning your dream into a reality.
Yes you can!
Make that your priority henceforth instead of putting your energy on pretence.
Secondly, don’t judge a book by its cover.
I hear things like, “I want a marriage just like yours” or “I want to marry a man just like your husband” a lot.
. . . Be careful what you wish for because you just might get it.
And it might be disastrous.
There are lots of fake people out there.
You don’t know the tears behind the smiles you see.
It’s cool to admire good things in the life of others but don’t peg yourself on their pedestal.
Instead ask for God’s best for your own life.
Face your lane.
May God grant your heart desires according to His will for you!
