Are you the type of person who looks at the outwardly appearance of someone to determine if you want to be friends with them? Well, I must say, we have all had a time in our lives where we based our friendship invitations on how someone dressed.

I’ve had many times where someone caught my eye because of the grace they held, while sashaying across that runway (or, in everyday life, across the street). But, similar to meeting a guy that we could potentially date, we must begin to peel back the layers. We must begin to look past the clothes and shoes, the overall exterior. Instead, we must begin looking at their heart, their character, and their demeanor, including, how they treat others. 

If your newfound friend is uptight, rolling her eyes at someone who appears insignificant, we might want to question if this is the type of friendship we’d like to entertain. I’m not saying lets walk around being judgmental. No, instead, I am suggesting that we be careful of the company that we keep because their ways and character can very well become our own. 

For example — when you are baking bread, typically you have an entire list of ingredients that need to be added. Most of the ingredients being inactive; however, their are times when you have an active ingredient that changes the DNA of the others. For example, yeast can make the doe rise, changing the overall appearance. 

The question I want to leave you with is, are your friends changing your entire DNA? If so, are they changing it for the good? Are you starting to snap at your peers, those who you feel are insignificant? Lastly, what are the characteristics that you feel are most significant?

Did you know that, according to freedictionary.com, nakedness means “exposed to harm; vulnerable?” If you are in the shower and someone walks in, what is your initial response? For me, I’d jump up and try to cover myself; to keep from further shaming myself. Then, I’d try to hide from that person (and everyone that we share a mutual connection), trying with all my might to avoid the issue at hand. Which is, they know something about me that I’ve tried to keep sacred and private.

Instead of continuing to hide from our imperfections, our sketetons in the closet, or our past decisions; we need to confront them head-on. If we don’t confront the Goliath in our life we will continue to lose our voice. Our strength and authenticity will become weaker and weaker because we’ve freely given our power away.

So, who’s the big bad wolf in your life trying to blow your foundation into shambles? What individual has your hands tied, while pinning you up against the wall?

How are you going to put a stop to this on-going cycle? How are you going to stop the lies and deceit? How are you going to finally declare that ENOUGH IS ENOUGH?

Regardless of the decisions we’ve made in the past, there is a father that loves us so much that He sent His son on the cross; to remove our set in stains and to wash us white as snow. Lastly, who’s taken us into His family regardless of who we used to be.
