I found this lotion in a local coffee shop called "Third Street Stuff" and I just couldn't resist! Yes, I bought it...and yes I put it on!!! At first I laughed my head off and bought one for everyone I know. But then after a few sips of my coffee I got to thinking?
(For some reason coffee makes me feel more philosophical and "deep?" Anyone else...or maybe I'm just strange that way! I grew up in a town w/o a Starbucks and always envied those on TV who walked around carrying brief cases sipping their 15 letter long coffee drinks. I wanted to be "one of those people").
OK OK enough about my love of Starbucks (and did I mention I don't even like coffee...I want to want to like it...but I don't....but I drink it because I feel like I look smarter carrying the cup around...it makes me feel more grown up!)
OK for real,back to my "philosophical" point....Have we reduced our spirituality down to "lotion"...something we put on just to "smell" good and/or look good? Do some people really think that is all there is too it?
OH girls....we have got to start living intentionally and letting people know that Christ is something so much more than something we just "put" on when we want to "look/smell" good. He is so much more!
AND NOT TO MENTION....WE ALREADY ARE "TIGHT WITH CHRIST" (i am crossing my fingers here)!! SO TIGHT, IN FACT, HE GAVE HIS SON TO DIE FOR US. IF THAT ISN'T "TIGHT" I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS!
Live this life girls....and do it on purpose! We only get one chance!!! Let others know how much fun it is to be "tight with Christ"...and NOT just on Sundays....but EVERYDAY!!
