Don't let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity. -1 Timothy 4:12

Looks Aren't Everything..

Why are you living in luxurious houses while mine lies in ruins?
-Haggai 1:4-

Why do people rely on looks to get them through school or life?
Why do people always try to have the expensive things?
Why do people want to compete with others about who has the coolest things?

Looking outside when I'm sitting in the backseat, I always seem to notice big churches or HUGE houses. There are many reasons why the churches could be so big...maybe a lot of people, or needed more space. However there are some reasons that aren't for Christ. stand out, be seen, or for publicity.

I don't understand why people think they are so much better than people who don't have the things they do. I notice at school and around our small town how they're many "cliques" that exclude the people who don't have as luxurious things.

-I got most of this stuff from Haggai 1.-
