I have spent many years brushing and washing, drying and trimming, meticulously positioning and styling our children’s hair. Had to do again just this morning.
Which got me thinking…
Beliefs are like hair…
Often dirtied and singed,
Regularly needing cleaned up and put in place,
Sometimes needed trimmed,
Occasionally needing cut off entirely.
The life of Christ is the perfect brush, shaping our beliefs against his actions.
God’s Holy Spirit like the heat of a hair dryer.
God’s promises are like jewels mounted by pins of faith.
The Word of God makes for a great fortifying shampoo.
God’s grace is the perfect water.
The word of God also is the sharpest pair of shears.
“For the word of God is living and active,
sharper than any two-edged sword,
piercing to the division of soul and of spirit,
of joints and of marrow,
and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.”
– Hebrews 4:12
