When I was your age, we went to a traditional church. The ones like you see on TV. Red brick with high ceilings, a red carpeted central aisle separating two rows of wooden pews. The minister wore black robes. Actually, I went to two different churches, one like I just described and another 100-year-old one in a tiny town. The white steepled building looked like a postcard.
The churches may not have looked much alike but they were very similar. They had Sunday school teachers who led us in songs then taught us Bible stories using black flannel boards and cut-outs of Bible characters. This was high-tech. Remember, back then we didn’t have DVDs or laptop computers.
Is it possible to have too of something good? Too much chocolate? Too much fun? Too many friends? Too much family? Too much money? Too many books? Too many clothes?
I guess it depends on what it is. Clearly, it is impossible to have too much chocolate. :)
The world tells us one thing about beauty and God tells us another. The world would like us to think that we are only beautiful if we have the right clothes, perfect complexions, the right make up, etc... But God sees us differently. He sees the true beauty in the way we treat others and in the way we love him.
