I love the blind carbon copy (not really). We’ve all done it, or had it done to us . . . it’s the practice of sending an email and blind copying someone else – so your original recipient doesn’t see that you’ve also sent the message to a friend, a boss, a co-worker . ..
It’s deceitful. It’s lying . . . It’s bad practice.
But here’s the thought – don’t we do the same thing on Sunday morning with the Savior? We put on our “sunday best” – whether that be a face, or clothes, or expectations for our kids, or consumer-driven desires about what we need to “get” out of the worship service – and we come in pretending . . .
We come pretending that our lives are perfect, and we’ve got it all together – instead of coming acknowledging that we’ve all got the same broken, messed-up lives and the only “fix” lies in resting in God’s grace, and our standing in Christ. We’ve tried to blind copy our friends, and the rest of the congregation on the email that says “Doing great! Nothing’s wrong here!”
