Who are You Trying to Impress?

Re:Verse passage – 1 Peter 3:1-7 (day seven)

Your adornment must not be merely external…

The women whom Peter was referring to were dressing and adorning themselves extravagantly. So much to the point that it had become a distraction in the congregation. Maybe they were trying to appear more holy or more educated. Maybe their goals were vain and they were seeking attention for their beauty. Nevertheless, while trying so hard to gain the attention of those around them, they were neglecting the attention of the One who gave them their true beauty.

Who are you trying to impress? It may be with clothes or jewelry, or it could be with words or attitude, but it becomes easy for us to enter our church buildings more worried about how we will be perceived by others in the room than the message we came there to receive. You have created a distraction by making others the object of your worship rather than God. Who will you try to impress today?
