The prophets are rebuked: "when a flimsy wall is built, they cover it with whitewash".
What areas of my life am I "whitewashing"?
When do I minimize my sin? Claiming that it is "not that big of deal" or "it is not really affecting anyone else" or "others are worse than me"...
When do I try and cover up for my brokenness? Distract myself by pointing out the faults of others. Work hard at maintaining my image. Allow no one to come close and see what I am truly thinking or feeling.
Perhaps Jesus and I need to work on the foundations of my life a bit more.
Character development not just painting over flimsy walls.
