As a parent, do we place too much value in the way we look? Don’t get me wrong. There’s nothing wrong with looking good. But, do we spend too much time shopping for the latest fashions, looking for the perfect hairstyle, or going frantic over that new gray hair or wrinkle? Guess what? Our kids see it. That’s why we shouldn’t be surprised when we hear those familiar words, “I’m not wearing that.” Scripture’s pretty clear about vanity, too. Psalm 119:37 says, “Turn my eyes from looking at worthless things; and give me life in your ways.” As a parent, what do we value? Fashion or faith? While we may spend time in church, the things we value are displayed in word and deed.
