It was her first day at a new school, what should she wear? It was his first day at his new job, what tie should he wear – the red power tie, or the blue calm and understanding tie? It was her wedding day, and the dress she would wear came with a hefty price tag and was the result of numerous trips to bridal shops in search of the perfect dress.
Different events and yet there is a singular question common among them that cannot go unanswered. The question is, What do I wear?
It’s an important question because a person only has one chance to make an excellent first impression. Ours is a culture in which many are obsessed with being admired or even envied by others. You’ve heard it said, I’m sure, “If you want to get ahead in this world, you had better dress the part!” To be a winner, you’ve got to look like a winner.
I continue to be amazed at how much time and energy people spend on that which is temporal and give so little attention to that which is eternal. What do you gain, if you look good and dress well and are well-liked and admired by all for an entire lifetime and, in the end, lose your soul?
In the next few posts, I’ll be writing about how to “Dress to Win,” both in this material and spiritual realm. I encourage you to read Ephesians 6:10 -18, in preparation for these future posts. So, until next time, “be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might?” (Eph. 6: 10).
