Have you noticed that people want to look good? We buy all kinds of clothing and accessories to enhance how we look. But I’ve noticed that fashions change a lot. Take women’s hats and gloves. They were all the rage decades ago in the United States. Now, not so much. Oh, women still wear hats. But they seem to be driven by function. They are either for warmth in winter or shade in summer. Just wearing a hat and gloves, especially indoors, to make a style statement is less common.
If you think stylish hats are less common, what about wearing a garland of flowers on your head? Rarely do you see that! Oh, you might see it at a wedding or some tropical resort. We just don’t adorn ourselves with flowers much, but we do wear gold jewelry. Just look at the gold chains that are sold! Men and women both wear gold chains. That’s because men and women both are concerned with how they look.
Do you want to look good? Then listen to instructions about right and wrong. No, really! Proverbs 1:8-9 says, “Listen, my son, to your father’s instruction and do not forsake your mother’s teaching. They will be a garland to grace your head and a chain to adorn your neck.”(NIV)
Today, be sure to pay as much attention to the teachings of God as to clothing and accessories! May they grace and adorn you!
