I heard this message today on christian talk radio it was about teen girls how they dress to be notice but two words keep playing over and over in my thoughts. Known or noticed.
I was thinking about a family member who needs to have the best clothing, perfect look. She is consumed with how she appeares to others. This person is know at the start of summer to figure out how many carnivals they will go to and buy herself and children new outfits for each. She said to me once "you can't be seen in the same outfit at each carnival. "
With the events of the last few days and being around numerous family member what this person doesn't understand is how she it talked about. They use words like "fake, snob, and even spacey" They say she is all surface. She just wants to be noticed.
Then there are those who want to be known. I think I'm in that category. I want people to know me for who I am. I want to be accepted for who I am when I am inside my home when the doors are closed. Don't get me wrong I dress nice but I don't out of my way to pay for a special look. I want people to know me because I am a child of God. I want them to see Jesus in me.
You see if people thought I just wanted to be noticed and am fake how would that reflect God to them?
