Why do we need so many types of toilets? They all perform the same function. Basic white will go with any color scheme. One size fits all. What does it say about us and our culture to visit the bathroom section of the local building supply store and see the resources and creativity applied to basic sanitation? Many people don’t even have running water.
How many different things in our life are this way, i.e. designer labels on toilets? How much of our money and choices are focused on items that do the same thing at a much different cost? Watches, cars, eye glasses, colleges, tissue, clothes; almost every area of life is included.
How much of your life is an investment in impressing other people? What is the point of a Rolex watch? I have never heard anyone praise it’s time keeping prowess. It is all about diamonds and gold.
Should this be your focus? I think you know the answer. Jesus said,
(Matthew 6:33 KJV) But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.If you read the last phrase and shout, “Hallelujah,” you have missed the point. If you ignore the priorities of God, you are ignoring everything that is important.
Make the Holy Spirit your designer label.
