Our society is obsessed with what we look like. And I'm not just talking about our threads.
I'm talking about so much more.
the street our property sits on
the success our kids achieve
our hair color
the size of our bank account
our social alignment
And it needs to stop.
Because for every board we create, every post we write, every slippery magazine we read, every discussion we have, every housewives show we ingest, that whispers,
"What you look like on the outside is extremely important"....
We take two steps away from what the Lord reminds us is valuable. We actively are replacing one message with another.
And when we eventually end up forgetting what really is important, the road to rediscover it, is treacherous.
Proverbs 31: 30
"Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting: but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised."
1 Samuel 16: 7
"The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart."
"Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them."
"Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror and immediately forgets what he looks like."
