Good Morning Saints!
For days, my heart has been filled with thoughts of how the outer appearance affects our acceptance of others. To say that it has no affect on our emotions, is ludicrous. We were given eyes as a tool, but how we use them is up to us. Remember, our eyes can be deceiving, as we must see with our hearts. And, when we see with our hearts, it is only with the help of the Holy Spirit. I often wonder about John the Baptist and how his appearance turned heads and wagged tongues. According to the Bible, he didn't much care for fashionable clothing. I wonder if his hair was combed? Did he make sure his clothing was clean and his shoes were polished before stepping out of his cave?
Now, there is nothing wrong with looking fabulous and smelling pleasant, but be careful how you look at others. Some people could care less about their clothing and the latest fashions, but house hearts of gold. See them with your heart and not your eyes, for you belong to the Almighty and must see them through Him. And, let's be frank: Someone has had to try and see you through the eyes of the Almighty, in order to tolerate you. Oh, yes, believe it and receive it! In
Scripture for the Week
Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.
Put away perversity from your mouth; keep corrupt talk far from your lips.
Let your eyes look straight ahead, fix your gaze directly before you.
Music for the Week
Warning: Very Old School and Small Church-a-fied;-)
My grandmother loved these singers-not fancy-just real...
Be blessed and listen with your heart.
