Fig leaves are recognised as evidence of figs being present on the tree. There was however this occasion when leaves were seen and there were no figs! Disappointing!
The world promotes appearances without corresponding substance. Sayings like “fake it till you make it”, have unfortunately been imbibed by many, resulting in a culture of deceit, including misleading advertisements, media misrepresentation by which masses have been misled!
It is sad to see, not infrequently too, people striving to be anything besides who they really are, in a bid to be “successful” and be accepted. Unfortunately the image being aspired for, is not uncommonly that of someone else who is also trying to be what they know not.
An inspiring read to be real, is John Mason’s book- you are born an original, don’t die a copy! It will be sad to strive to be a copy of a copy and never live to realise great potential!
What are my fig leaves? What am I trying to cover up? What fruits should I be bearing at this stage in life?
