We ended our series, Hope of Glory, this weekend and my husband preached such a great message for Mother’s Day. It was called, “The Problem with Pinterest.” He talked to us about the dangers of comparison by using 2 Corinthians 3:12-18.
He pointed out to us that sometimes Moses wore the veil because the glory was fading from him. He asked us what veil are we wearing? We often think that the way to help others is to keep our veil on and tell them “you should,” but often the best help you can offer those around you is to take your veil off and admit, “me too!”
He told us only in Christ does image management come to an end. We can not allow ourselves to live in the past memories or our imagination of the future. When we do that we miss the glory of the present moment!
God wants to transform me from glory to glory, not from shame to glory. When I remove my veil, I can see God more clearly!
My husband shared a great illustration about comparison. He showed this welcome video my kids and I made last Easter…
Then he shared (with my permission) the behind the scenes of that video…
I am taking off my veil today. I am saying me too! I struggle to get my kids to behave! I struggle with having a good attitude in every situation! Me too!
And don’t forget, every sermon is also available on the Elevation App for your smart phone.
Have a great Monday!
