In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God
Today’s post has nothing to do with fashion, beauty, or decorating. While I love blogging about all those things, I will be the first to admit that in the big picture they mean very little. What do I mean by “the big picture”? Well, I am talking about a Godly worldview or perspective.
It’s easy to get caught up in clothes, makeup, and making your home as beautiful as possible and forget about the things that really matter. There is nothing wrong with enjoying those things as long as they don’t become idols. Ouch! Did that strike a nerve? It sure did with me. How many times have we allowed an obsession over something to take over our time, effort, and thoughts?
From a Christian perspective, an idol is anything in your life that takes higher priority than your relationship with God. Even this blog can become an idol if I am not careful. It takes an enormous amount of time to put together a blog post. I do it because I enjoy sharing what I have learned with other women, but if I share fashion advice or a new foundation and fail to share Jesus, not only have I failed my readers miserably, but I have gotten my priorities out of order.
I have been feeling led to include more biblical truth on my blog, so I decided to write a Sunday post every week called “A word from The Word”. I am no theologian, but I hope to share verses that will inspire thought and prayer, while giving some life application.
I understand that not all of my readers share my Christian faith and some may find these types of posts offensive or annoying. If that is the case, I ask that you simply don’t read them. I am always open to questions and comments as long as they are kind and respectful.
Hopefully, most of you will enjoy my Sunday posts. The rest of my content will remain the same, and I hope you will continue to stop by My Southern Charm Style throughout the week.
As we start another week, let’s all be mindful of what we value most. Are there things in our lives that have become idols? Do we need to rearrange our priorities in order to put God in His rightful place?
