I’m NOT wearing that!

Posted on 8/10/2019 by Greg Yoder

As a parent, do you place too much value on the way you look? Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with looking good. But, do we spend too much time shopping for the latest fashions, looking for that perfect hairstyle, or going frantic over that new gray hair or wrinkle? Guess what? Our kids see it. That’s why we shouldn’t be surprised when we hear these familiar words: “I’m not wearing that.” Scripture’s pretty clear about vanity. Psalm 119:37 says, “Turn my eyes from looking at worthless things; and give me life in your ways” (ESV). As a parent, what do you value? Fashion or faith? While we may spend time in church, the things we value are displayed in word and deed.
