First,… I want to say I am as guilty as anyone. So I’m not casting stones. Just trying to understand the error of my ways.
What will you wear to church for Easter Sunday? For me, this Sunday has become nothing more that a fashion show. Will you buy a new dress? A new purse? A new suit and tie? Shoes? See what I mean? But wait you say,… it is because it is Spring and we need new clothes for the season. Really? That is just an excuse rolled up in toilet paper as a preacher I once knew used to say.
Easter Sunday should be about children,… hiding eggs,… chocolate bunnies and baskets filled with fake grass. Nothing more. A Christian shouldn’t become involved in the fashion show at a church service. That is what Easter has become for so many. A fashion show. And yet,… what have you bought to wear for Easter Sunday? Will you look down on people that don’t wear new threads on that day? Will you speak to people that continue to wear older clothes and not the newest Spring fashions? If so,… you are going to church for the wrong reasons. I know, I’ve been there, done that, have the tee shirt.
