1Co 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
1Co 3:17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
This blog may offend some of my readers but the truth is the truth.
Today’s teenagers dress as if they are going to go on public auction or a beauty show. What’s up with twelve year olds looking eighteen; what’s up with eighteen year olds looking twenty one. Granted some of the eighteen year olds have already had their first child. The biggest problem I see there is “no husband.”
I do applaud the teenagers that are classic fashion statements and their parents who apparently already are concerned about dress code ~ they have ensured that their teenagers will display the temple correctly in God’s sight.
Last night at Jubilee I got to be a front line greeter next to the vertical info poles. I got to say hi, exchange names, and glorify God as they walked in. The well dressed fashion statement Christian teenager is a “art show,” in progress. I poked fun at some of their choices and the parents got a change to laugh and laugh. The teenagers will take that from a old 71 grandpaw but certainly never from mom or dad.
Hair’s a big deal just as it was when I was a teenager. When I was a teenager I sported a “basketball cut.” That is everything on top and sides cut real short but on the front was a tuff of hair you could pull on.
Here’s a neat trick you can do with your teenager ….. get them to read the scripture above but put their name in it. Looks like this …..
1Co 3:16 Know Amber that Amber is the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in Amber ?
1Co 3:17 If any guy or boyfriend defiles the Amber’s Temple of God, the boyfriend or guy shall God destroy; for Amber’s temple of God is holy, which Amber ye are.
Now have Amber read it again and perhaps again till it sinks in …….
I’m up for red hair, orange hair, blue hair, green hair and any combo there off. Hair is the only thing in life that you have control over. You own your hair.
So come to Jubilee today and show me your “Godly Fashion.” it’s the in thing to do kids; trust me on this……
