What's inside?

Gourd Gift from a collector 2012

“The weird thing about houses is that they almost always look like nothing is happening inside of them, even though they contain most of our lives. I wondered if that was sort of the point of architecture.”  ― John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

This quote is amazing.  Then think about seeing a person for the first time and you truly realize what you see on the outside is not necessarily what is on the inside.  When you look in  a mirror can you see what is in your heart? 

We spend countless hours and money on how we look. Well, most of us do.  We have become a self absorbed society.  We are teaching our children the same things just by our actions, so I am troubled about times ahead for my grandchildren.  In so many ways it is too late because not enough of us care to cut back on our addiction to our current society and all the toys that go with it. 

Seeing people passing you on the street or at a restaurant, you have no idea who they are, the problems they have, the joys that are in their lives etc... we just pass by each other in life.  If you live in a crowded neighborhood like we do, chances are you do not even know all the people on your own street.  That was unheard of thirty years ago. 

Question, do you even know who you are?

"My son, do not forget my teaching,  but keep my commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life many years and bring you peace and prosperity." Proverbs 3:1-2
