“Sincerity makes the very least person to be of more value than the most talented hypocrite”–Charles Spurgeon

     In September 2012, a Montana-resident by the name of Randy Lee Tenley was struck and killed by two cars on U.S. Highway 93.  Tenley was wearing a military-style suit that was covered in vegetation.  Reporters asked his associates why he would be dressed in such an outfit during the dusk of the evening on a busy highway.  His friends told of Tenley’s fascination with the “Big Foot” phenomenon.
Tenley’s plan was to be seen by the passengers on Highway 93, hoping it would spark reports of Sasquatch sightings.  Little did he know that trying to be something he was not would turn fatal.
We often go to great lengths to “prove” something to others; when the reality is, most people just want us to be ourselves around them.  God made all of us unique and different; and when we try to be something or someone we are not, it almost always ends poorly.
There is nothing wrong with aspiring to change for the better; but not at the expense of being fake.  God honors the lives of individuals who are authentic and genuine.  Don’t allow your fascination with Big Foot turn you into a Big Fool.  Take off the mask and be the best you you can be for the honor and glory of God.
