When the final judgement comes, how well you dressed for church will be on the top of the list.
Growing up everyone dressed up in their Sunday best! The men in suits, and women with hats gloves and purse!
As years went by, I noticed the dress code relaxed, and was not respected at all! When I saw shorts and risqué clothes, I gasped!
Family values, the family unit is no more in some families.
Memories of sitting around the dinner table on a Sunday afternoon, visiting with relatives was a constant!
My, have times changed! Sigh!
Ella says what a lot of us are thinking!
Have a blessed day my friends.
At the least it may be for our own edification, so shower and gussy up.
“I was raised as a Catholic, but I got up to go to church because I thought I’d be hit by a bolt of lightning if I didn’t.” Chuck Feeney
“A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.” Pauline Phillips
“Church architecture describes visually the idea of the sacred, which is a fundamental need of man.” Mario Botta
“The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.” Henry Ward Beecher
“The Church is not an automobile showroom – a place to put ourselves on display so that others can admire our spirituality, capacity, or prosperity. It is more like a service center, where vehicles in need of repair come for maintenance and rehabilitation.” Dieter F. Uchtdorf
They show up to church once a week and act holy. Then they go out to the parking lot and cut each other off and cuss at each other.
That is the ideal , but unfortunately, the ideal is too often left by the wayside.
It’s a sign of respect for the King of Kings.
