- Samuel 16:7 NIV
Put it this way, if you are always at your up most best every Sunday is anybody really going to see the real you? Or are they just seeing the made-up you? And besides, we aren’t at church for other people; we are there for God. Like the verse above says, God looks at the heart not the outward appearance. Church isn't a dress up competition, it’s a time for us to come together as one congregation and worship our Father.
Don't get me wrong, we don't all have to come to church barefaced and wearing flare jeans and baggy tops. It’s nice to look nice. It’s nice to put an effort into your appearance. It’s nice to give your best to God. But I think there's a balance to be had between looking nice and looking NOICE (if you know what I mean). Nobody expects you to come to church having spent an hour on your outfit and make up, just come as you are. Be confident in who you are. You don't have to look a certain way or dress a certain way. Come as you are!
