Anyone that knows my husband knows that he is an impeccable dresser. He always looks very polished and put together. I asked him one day where he learned to dress so well. He said, “My father always told me to dress how I wanted to be treated.” I thought about what he said and how powerful and useful that piece advice was from his father.
As Christians, the word of God gives us similar advice on how to present ourselves. Romans 12:1-2 is a great example.
New International Version (NIV)
A Living Sacrifice
“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
As you go about your day, put your best foot forward, not just in how you dress, but also in how you speak, how you think and how you treat others.
Be vigilant in protecting what you allow in your mind. Is the music you listen to positive or inspirational? Are the people you associate with of good character? Are you conscious of the TV and social media you or your children watch?
We, including myself, all have room to grow. I encourage us all to strive to be the very best versions of ourselves.
Now, Ive got the 1970’s Coca-Cola song in my head. Yes, Im telling my age…
