Armani Suits

School has started here. First day outfits were chosen, pictures were taken, obligatory kiss on the head for the middle schooler, and we’re off. With all the excitement and anticipation around the first day of middle school, I thought of the coming transition into concerns about fitting in, how you look, what you wear, and all the wonderful things that come with it. There are places in adult life that are also filled with “uniforms” where you can be judged on the brand of your suit or the cost of your purse. It made me think that I want to be sure that my children know that no matter what they wear, or what they are holding, there is nothing more valuable than they are. No Armani suit, Coach purse, or Tiffany necklace can make you more valuable than who you already are. It’s great to want to look good, but it is best when it reflects the beauty within, instead of covering it up. Even we adults need to be reminded of that sometimes.

    Knowing the truth of this carries with it the benefit of a peaceful mind and a feeling of power. When you understand God is not a respecter of such things, your realize you do not have to waste time and resources pursuing them and not having them does not decrease your worth as a person.
