When we put our values into "things" we value ourselves less. Have we ever made excuses for our friends, surroundings and yes, even our parents? Maybe we have been ashamed of the way our parents dress or act (because it wasn't what we thought would impress others). Maybe they chose to give us everything they could, even if it meant a sacrifice of themselves. 2 Timothy 3:2, "For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful...heartless...not loving good...having the appearance of good but denying its power. Avoid such people." When we value "things" much higher than GOD our Souls become "merchandise" which has no value at all. Today, maybe we can go to Church with someone (and not be ashamed to be with them); maybe even give them a Hug (in front of everyone and say I love you) by Honoring GOD, we honor them, and ourselves; THAT'S ALL IT TAKES!
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
