Bejing has a really bad smog problem. It’s grounded planes, caused residents to speak out, and prompted government officials to urge people to stay indoors. The before and after photos are stunning.
It’s getting so bad the government has finally started to admit it’s a problem. But prior to the last 30 days or so, their answer downplayed the problem.
It’s not smog. It’s just fog.
The fog deception. It’s funny how hard we work sometimes to pretend something isn’t as bad as it seems. Which brings up an interesting question: what are you pretending is just fog in your life?
If you’re like me, there’s a slew of things you need to work on to achieve your goals and find your calling. Bad habits to kick, Bible reading plans to finish, and relationships that need work. These things can be covered in smog but I continue to tell myself it’s just fog.
Learn from the Chinese government: eventually your smog problems will get so bad you’ll have to admit that maybe it’s something else after all.
Have you seen the fog deception at work in your life lately? What are you telling yourself is just fog?
