Make Your Bed

Salvation is all in your heart. God is concerned with that, not your outward appearance. How you look doesn't have an ounce to do with your Salvation, yet it does have some to do with living the life of Christ.
1 Samuel 16:7 But the Lord said to Samuel, "Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart. "

Man looks at the outward appearance. It's just a fact.
If you are anything like me, you would much rather come into your room at night and find a made bed instead of an un-made bed. It's more appealing. It doesn't matter how nice the sheets are or how soft the mattress is. It looks more inviting when made-up well. The same is true of you. A non- Christian is not going to think much of your patience and empathy if they see you in stained, tattered clothes with knotted hair. I'm not saying you need to spend lots of money, or have the nicest clothes, but you do need to make use of what you have and give heed to your outward appearance. Remember that you are portraying Christ to the world.

Love in Christ,
