I got these new shoes which are really perfect for the rainy season. You can’t tell just by looking that they are actually rubber shoes. They even have a veneer of velvet which makes it look cooler. I know it would wear off eventually but I’d rock it while it lasts.
Some of us are like my rubber shoes. Yes, all beautiful/handsome on the outside complete with the right assets (y’all know what I mean). Some even have elaborate attitudes/ mannerisms so much so that when they step into a room, you just have to notice them.
“There is a right time for everything… a time for keeping; a time for throwing away” Eccl 3:1, 6b The Living Bible®…
Word! That’s exactly what the Good Book says.
The sprayed on velvet on my shoes would eventually wear off and everyone would get to see just how ugly the rubber underneath really is. Then it would be good for only one thing – Throwing away!
If your beauty serves as a fondant for a spoiling cake, you’d be found out eventually. Once those good attitudes are not inherent, they would wear off someday. Everyone and I mean everyone, would see the extent of your rottenness and by then you will be as useful as my ugly rubber shoes.
The shoes might be used to stoke a fire or someone who doesn’t know about the previous beautiful state might pick it up to use but you, no hope for you when your beauty fades. You’d be so useless and your name would be synonymous with rotten, decay, corrupt and the list goes on…
Be beautiful both inside and outside… Sprayed on characters never last.
