Fair or False Faces
The face is the mirror of the soul. It reflects your character, fair or false.
No mask of deceit, however clever its design, can hide for long your true personality – your real self.
Fair: what a wonderful word! These are some of its dictionary meanings: “pleasing to the eye; beautiful; gracious; courteous; desirable; elegant; frank; honest; impartial; just.”
By contrast, let’s look at the word “false.” These are some of its meanings: “dishonest; not faithful or loyal; untrue; treacherous; hypocritical; sham; feigned; not trustworthy.” How hideous this image of that which is false!
Fair or false – which will you choose?
If you’re smart, you’ll choose the fair. You’ll be fair in everything you do. Whether it’s in sports or in the more serious game of life, you’ll play fair; you won’t cheat or chisel.
You’ll be fair with friends and associates by being just an generous.
You’ll cultivate a fair face and a fair figure by clean, healthy living.
For your own sake, be fair, be just, be genuine, if you would be happy. Then, when you look in the mirror, your real face will reflect the honest thoughts you think, the honest words you speak, the honest life you live:
BE HONEST WITH YOURSELF
